(WECT) - National Missing Children's Day was declared by President Ronald Reagan in 1983 on the four year anniversary of Etan Patz, a six-year-old boy from New York who disappeared in 1979 and was never found.
Monica Caison, founder of the CUE Center in Wilmington, created a children's book for the classroom to help prepare and keep children safe in case they are lost.
The book targets children from kindergarten to 5th grade. It explains to children what they need to do in order for people to find them and ways to survive on their own.
So far, the book is in 19 states and by the end of the year there will be 25,000 copies in schools the CUE Center is working with now.
If you would like to get a copy for your family or an organization you are working with, contact the CUE Center.
