If your child is missing and you suspect he or she is being sexually exploited, contact your local law enforcement agency.

-Write down the name of the officer who takes the report, as well as the badge number, telephone number and the police report number.

-Ask the officer who will follow up on the initial investigation.

-Keep a notebook and record of all information on the investigation.

-Ask if your child is entered into the National Crime Information Computer. The child must be entered here or other law enforcement agencies won't know that your child has been reported as missing if or when the child is picked, or if your child's name has been checked for something else.

-Make your child's fingerprint and dental records available to the police.
