25 Missing Children From Washington, Do You Recognize anyone?
It's every parent's nightmare. When children go missing from home, school, anywhere, fear sets in. Who took the child, teen, or adult? What happened? Please take a look at these missing children going back to 1971. One of these kids could be your neighbor, a fellow co-worker, or parishioner. Do you have any information about any of these children?
I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child due to any circumstance. To not know what has happened to someone has to be unbearable.
Her mother went to her grave not knowing what happened to Sofia.
Should anyone recognize one of these missing people please reach out to any Police agency. The Washington State Patrol updates the missing children images here.
