NCMEC: Hope is why we're here
"We wanted to make sure of one thing, that Adam didn’t die in vain."
- Revé & John Walsh, Adam's Parents and Founders of NCMEC

Remembering AdamOn July 27, 1981 - 41 years ago today - Adam John Walsh was abducted from a Florida department store and tragically murdered at just 6 years old.

In the wake of their child's senseless death, John and Revé Walsh realized there were so many other children and families who needed help. Along with other child advocates, they founded the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) as a private, non-profit organization to serve as the national resource center for information about missing and exploited children.

Adam's legacy has touched the lives of countless families through NCMEC since being founded in 1984. Our national toll-free hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST, has received more than 5 million calls. We’ve circulated billions of photos of missing children. We’ve assisted law enforcement in the recovery of more than 376,000 missing children thanks to constantly increasing and improving public awareness, training, laws, and technology.

Each year on the anniversary of his disappearance, we remember Adam by sharing his story and his parents wishes for NCMEC to turn tragedy into hope by helping as many families as we possibly can.

You can assist us in honoring Adam by taking the time to view and share photos of missing children and by making a donation to support NCMEC in our continued effort to bring kids home safely.
