Create, Print, and Download a Missing Child flyer

A missing child flyer should contain as much identifying information as possible including:

  • Name of missing child
  • When and where the child was last seen
  • Responsible law enforcement agency and contact number
  • Gender of missing child
  • Age
  • Birth date
  • Race
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Eye Color
  • Hair Color
  • Complexion
  • Distinguishing Marks (scars, birthmarks, body piercings)
  • Clothing Description
  • Address
  • Photo

Photos should be the best likeness and most recent photo of the missing child (not a glamor shot) and clearly show the shoulders and face.

Do not put personal addresses or phone numbers on the flyer. Always use the appropriate law enforcement contact number.
