WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has launched a new Facebook page dedicated to identifying unknown, deceased children.
The page is called Help ID Me (www.facebook.com/HelpIDMe). According to officials, the children who will be featured on the page each month are often found deceased without any information that can tell law enforcement who they were.
Each month, NCMEC will featured a case, posting images and information associated with the child. You can see unidentified children from your state by clicking on the photo albums that will be uploaded to the page.
The first post, from Thursday, shows the successful identification of Michelle Garvey:www.facebook.com/notes/help-id-me/recovered-michelle-garvey/793389627355613
This week, WUSA9 also launched its effort to find as many missing local children as possible. The "Bring Them Home" campaign was inspired by the case of Relisha Rudd, who is missing from D.C. Each Thursday through May 22 our newscasts will feature photos from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website.
Many of the children on the national website are runaways and they usually make it back home within the week. However, some of those children have been missing for years, sometimes with no hope of ever returning.
All you have to do is keep clicking this page (http://www.wusa9.com/topic/dbd1f1ac-bbeb-4d11-9cca-b61d37a936ea/missing-children/) and sharing the links on each page via the Facebook, Twitter and Email buttons.
We've also created a gallery on our Facebook page to make it easier for you to share this information with your loved ones and the ones closest to you: http://www.facebook.com/WUSA9/photos/a.10152786360199778.1073741829.91515504777/10152786399644778/?type=1&theater
