This is the world we live in today. We know it happens all over, but it's hard to imagine it happening in North Dakota. Unfortunately, there are some children missing in our state.

In order to help bring attention to these missing children cases, I've put together a list of the unsolved/unresolved cases in our state.

Did You Know:

In 2021 there were 337,195 missing children reported to NCIC (National Crime and Information Center), according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children?

This source says this isn't an exact number, as so many children are never reported missing. In other words, there could be many more than that.

Some of these children I've listed went missing some time ago; the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has included "Age progression" photos, so you can get an idea as to what they would look like today.

Missing Children In North Dakota

Some of these cases date quite a ways back, but families continue pursuing leads.

Keep in mind: While the progression photos are very helpful, it's not exact. It's possible the missing individual has a different hair color and/or looks different from what the photo depicts.

Hard To Think About

I can't imagine being a parent and not knowing where your child is. I hope these families and all affected get answers.

Keep your kids close, tell them you love them, and hug them tight. This sort of thing could happen to anyone. Cherish your loved ones and keep these kids and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
