Education plays an incredibly vital role and MSCA has developed an educational program called: ‘Tips for Children’ and ‘Tips for Parents’. The education is targeted to all our children countrywide and also shared with parents, guardians and the families who take care of these children. The education focuses on not only the dangers, but also the solutions with regards to what to do to keep children safe, and especially what not do.
In order for Missing Children South Africa to legally assist the South African Police Services (SAPS) when searching for a missing child (0 – 18 years old), we require the following important information and documentation:
When a case has been officially opened at SAPS we require the stamped Case Number with the OB or Enquiry Number
The missing person’s name
Date of birth
As well as the parent/guardian or the person reporting the missing person’s signature, full name and contact number.
Include/upload this when reporting a missing person. It can also be e-mailed or faxed to us.
