Have You Seen Me? Postal Service Helps Find Missing Children

Since 1985, U.S. Postal Service letter carriers have delivered special mail once a week that often represents the last hope for families searching for their missing children.

"The America's Looking For Its Missing Children program has won widespread recognition as one of the nation's most effective public service initiatives," pens Debra Mitchell on the website.

According to Debra, who works for the Postal Service, postal carriers will be delivering a newly designed direct mail piece called RedPlum, which features larger color photos of America's missing children with the tagline "Have You Seen Me?"

She goes on to write, "The Postal Service also publishes photos and information in the Postal Bulletin, which is distributed to all postal facilities and subscribers. This adds 700,000 postal employees to the list of people looking for America's missing children.

To date, thanks to the dedication of letter carriers and a strong partnership with ADVO, now Valassis, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), 148 missing children have been safely returned to their homes.
