Missing Children

Thousands of children disappear each year for various reasons, and many of them are still missing.

In an especially dramatic case, a four-year-old British girl, Madeleine McCann, was adducted in May 2007 from her parent's vacation apartment in Portugal, leading to renewed international awareness of this tragic problem. An international search for the child was started, but she has not been found. Sadly, the case of Madeleine McCann is but one of thousands. No country is unaffected, including Switzerland.

As an act of solidarity with all missing children and their loved ones, Switzerland in Sound is calling attention to this heart-breaking problem by providing a few links that we hope you will visit.

Every effort has to be made to find these children and end their ordeals. You might be able to help!

Thank you.
