The LRC Manual describes how to conduct a massive, citizen directed, effort to recover a missing child. It is expected that the recovery effort will be carried out in full cooperation with the presiding local law enforcement agency. It is recognized that each missing child incident will be different in scope and size and that not all of the material contained in this Manual will be applicable in all cases. We have assumed that the resources described will be made available by the community. Ideally, pre-incident preparations will have been made. We realize that this may not be the case in all circumstances. Nevertheless, the effort should be made with whatever resources are available. It is hoped that the experiences and guidelines we share will prove useful in recovering your missing child.
