In Depth: Missing Children

In 1983, Lila Quintons sent her 11-year-old son, Kirk, out to the corner market to get her a soda. After Kirk never returned, and 23 years later, his disappearance remains one of the oldest unsolved missing persons cases in the Bronx. In the United States, more than 700,000 children are reported missing each year. The Center For Missing and Exploited Children heads the search for missing children. It depends on tips relayed by anonymous callers to solve many of the cases. The center receives more than 700 tips a day on its toll free hotline. In addition, the center depends on computer technology to create photos of the missing children often based on projections of what the child may look like many years later.The Center For Missing and Exploited Children urges that anyone with information about Kirk's whereabouts call 1-800-843-5678.
