The Shocking Reality

Children GO MISSING DAILY in South Africa! According to the last figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons Bureau (SAPS) for 2013, children go missing every 5 hours. No recent statistics have been released by SAPS since 2013.

Missing Children South Africa’s statistic indicates that 77% of children are found. Sadly, this still leaves us with at least 23% of the children being either never found, trafficked or found deceased. Children are also the most vulnerable victims of gender-based violence.

The reality is shocking and undeniable, and we can no longer be innocent bystanders to this fact.

It can happen to your child!

What We Do

Missing Children South Africa (MCSA) is a Non-Profit and Public Benefit Organisation that assists the South African Police Service (SAPS) when a person goes missing in South Africa, for any reason whatsoever. We achieve this by following the steps below:

Emergency Response

When a person goes missing, we offer emergency response services to assist families and loved ones to report the missing person straight away.

Working with SAPS

We maintain a close working relationship with the South African Police Service, in order to offer them the support they need to locate missing persons.

Create Awareness

Through our social media networks and via other channels, we spread mass awareness about missing persons. This ensures that our communities can also assist in locating the missing person.

Ongoing Support

Being there for families when a loved one goes missing is another way we offer assistance. We realise that in the event of someone going missing, families need all the support they can get.
