The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) opened in 1984. NCMEC reports that as a result of increased public awareness, better training, improved laws, and technology, the missing children recovery rate increased from 62 percent in 1990 to more than 97 percent today. Currently, Congress authorizes NCMEC to perform 22 specialized tasks. These include operating the National Resource Center and Information Clearinghouse for missing and exploited children, providing a 24-hour telephone line for reporting and requesting information about missing children, operating a cyber tipline for reporting Internet-related child sexual exploitation, annually providing data on missing children to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and delivering technical assistance and training to law enforcement and others.
In October 2014, a concerned social worker in Texas contacted National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) about a 16-year-old she suspected of being a victim of child sex trafficking. The teen had been listed previously with NCMEC and was safely located in August 2014 by the Texas Attorney General's Office after having been missing for 2 months. At the time, the juvenile courts allowed the teen to be placed in the custody of her 20-year-old boyfriend. After the recovery and placement, the teen’s social worker became suspicious of the boyfriend and was worried that the teen was being offered commercially for sexual purposes. Upon receiving this information, NCMEC’s Case Management Team (CMT) immediately began coordinating resources.
