National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) (n.d.). National Emergency Child Locator Center. (Accessed 3/23/2017.)
This dedicated call center operated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) can be activated at the request of a disaster-impacted state to intake child-related reunification calls, to alleviate some of the call load from the impacted state’s emergency communications systems, and to coordinate tips and leads with on-the-ground reunification efforts. The NECLC has the capacity to expand or relocate to back-up sites.
