The new widget features pictures and information about children who are missing from the geographic area for which the MapQuest Local page is set. Users have the ability to search for missing children and link directly to NCMEC’s homepage for other missing children resources.

"In the National Center’s 25 years of existence more missing children come home now than ever before, but much more needs to be done," said Ernie Allen, President and CEO of NCMEC.

"The generosity of AOL and MapQuest has enabled us to increase the scope and channels by which we can share information about missing and exploited children."

Through the widget, users can view pictures of missing children and details about their disappearance. If they recognize one of the missing children or have information about one of the cases, they should contact NCMEC via their website or call 1-800-843-5678.

"We worked with NCMEC to create the new missing children widget on MapQuest Local to provide our users with a way to help bring these children home," said Christian Dwyer, general manager and senior vice president at MapQuest.

"Working this information into our Local site helps visitors to be constantly aware of how they can help in areas where they live or are visiting."

    Nothing but good can come of this. A wonderful idea which will certainly help many people in the years to come.

    A widget for missing persons period would be even better. A modern take on what the Salvation Army in the UK has been doing for years.
