A joint initiative of the WCD Ministry and the Department of Electronics and Information Technology, the website will have three sections, ‘My child is missing’, ‘I have sighted a child’ and ‘Search a missing child’.

The website will also provide links to court orders wherein police have been mandated to register an FIR in the matter of a child gone missing and treat it as either abduction or trafficking unless it is proved otherwise in the investigation.

“There is always a lack of information as to what can be done when a person loses a child. Since police play a very important role, the website will assist them in taking better help of police,” said a ministry official.

According to a report by Alliance for People’s Rights, a non-governmental organisation, on an average 18 children go missing in the national capital every day and four of them are never traced. The report said that parents of missing children often allege that authorities are not doing enough to help them and check such cases.
