|Paul Joseph, Missing People Child Rescue Alert Lead|
When we launched the enhanced Child Rescue Alert in May 2014 we set ourselves ambitious targets. We wanted to have 100,000 people signed up by the end of the first year and to be able to reach 1 million people with an alert. Two weeks ago we smashed that target, currently we have 252,000 individuals registered and we can already reach 6% of the population with an alert but we won’t stop there. We need to keep spreading the word, keep enlisting more individuals and search partners. After all, if it was your child that was missing wouldn’t you want everyone to join the search?
