A Child Is Missing (ACIM)…
is a Fort Lauderdale-based non-profit organization founded in 1997, and was created because no community-based program existed for locating missing children, the disabled and elderly often (with Alzheimer’s) during the crucial first hours of disappearance. This program also fills the gap when cases don’t meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.
A Child goes missing every 40 seconds in the United States.
Your child has a 1 in 42 chance of going missing…
A Child Is Missing (ACIM) is devoted to assisting law enforcement in the search and early safe recovery efforts of children / the elderly (often with Alzheimer’s) / disabled persons and college students via a rapid-response neighborhood alert program utilizing high-tech telephony systems.
ACIM will make alert calls (when requested by law enforcement) to the last seen areas, to help find these individuals who can’t make rational decisions for themselves.
The Elderly – Often with Alzheimer’s and Dementia: two dreaded diseases of the elderly. They tend to wander off and often think they are going to go ‘home’. That ‘home’ may be states away. They (The Elderly) tend to walk off and in some cases they will find a body of water, this is not good.
Disabled People who have been beaten, unconscious, or are suffering from memory loss. We will send out alert calls to find the guardian, parents, and friends. There may be other circumstances but a phone call will inform you if ACIM will run the case. Again, these alert calls are requested by law enforcement only.
