Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole pays tribute to four individuals at this year's National Missing Children's Day Ceremony - a special agent, a detective, a 30-year veteran of the postal service, and a prosecutor - for their extraordinary efforts to recover missing children, rescue children from abuse, and prosecute sexual predators. Melodee Hanes, Acting Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, also announces the release of AMBER Alert best Practices, a guide to enhance the ability of officials to safely recover missing and abducted children. This annual ceremony has been commemorated since 1983, honoring missing children, their families, child advocates and those dedicated to the well-being and safety of children.
