About Find the Children

Find the Children is a nonprofit, missing children’s organization, founded in 1983, by the late television producer, Linda Otto. Linda started Find the Children to promote communication between local and federal law enforcement, the media, and the parents of abducted children. Linda produced the film, “Adam,” which aired on television in 1983. The movie depicted the story about the kidnapping and murder of her friend John Walsh’s son [Adam]. At the end of the movie, a photo roll call of missing children played on the screen. As a result, several of the children were found. It was the first time media was used to find missing children.

Find The Children works closely with the Child Abduction Task Force, a multi-agency team sponsored by the Inter-Agency Council for Child Abuse and Neglect (ICAN). The goal of the Task Force is to reduce trauma to children and their families who are victims of abduction by providing an effective, coordinated multi-agency response to child recovery and reunification.
