The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that, on average, more than 2,000 children are reported missing every day across the nation. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) as of July 30, 2004 there were 47,842 active missing person cases in NCIC with 30,622 persons missing one year or more.

Today, there is no national registry of biometric identification information that could help locate and positively identify these missing children and adults.

The Children's Identification and Location Database (CHILD) Project has been created to help fill this critical need by creating a secure national database through the use of Iris Recognition Biometric Technology.

We hope you will take a moment to view our web site to learn more about The Child Project™ and search some of the links to view how this problem is being addressed through the work of many dedicated individuals and agencies across the nation.
