How to search for a missing child with the help of the Internet: a network overviewWhat should I do if my child is missing? First of all, try not to panic and start acting in all possible directions. Specialists advise the first thing to call all friends whose children could stay: relatives, friends of the family, teachers, schoolmates, mates and mates. Children, distracted by interesting things for them, can become distracted and forget the Call of the parents. Then you should contact the police - write a statement about the loss of the child. If at the first stages of the search the child was not found, you should contact the local mass media as soon as possible: newspapers, magazines, radio and television (so that the media can spread advertisements and notify as many people as possible). The more people you attract, the wider the resonance - the better, as this can help in the search. It is useful to paste in the area where you live and where, roughly, the last time you saw a child, his photos with the announcement of a search, because, probably, someone from the local residents noticed something and will be able to tell. Just do not forget to leave your contact phone numbers, and preferably not only your own, but relatives and friends (on the case if your phone is, for example, busy or outside the network coverage area). Online help Can I use the Internet to search for missing people, adults or children? Of course, you can. But it is important to understand that the Internet is only an auxiliary tool in such difficult situations, and rely solely on the power of cyberspace, ignoring others (including the above) methods is impermissible. In the Russian segment of the Internet there are a lot of resources dedicated to the cooperation of users in the search for missing persons. We list some of them. 1. The Internet resource "Separation - no!" (razluke.net) is a global Internet-People search. Despite the fact that the creators position it as "global", one can not help noticing that it is not so popular: the information in the sections is not updated very often. But this site can be used as a backup option for searches (and also to read articles on what preventive measures should be taken so that children are not lost). 2. Another search site - "Lost and Found" (find.org.ru). In its focus, it is more "global" than the above, as members of this community are looking not only at people, but also lost things, stolen cars, witnesses to accidents and other incidents, forgotten documents somewhere and so on. 3. Separately it is worth noting the Internet project of the popular social TV project "Wait for me" - poisk.vid.ru. This telecast (like the search service), we recall, began its activity long before Internet technologies penetrated the masses and became commonplace. For many years of work, the "Wait for Me" search service has proved itself well, and many people turn to us for help. And around the project, an audience of loyal users was formed, who not only search for someone, but can also help in searching for other people - and that, you will agree, is very important. 4. We should not forget about our project "Do not let it!" (detivrunete.ru), organized by the Center for Secure of Internet in Russia. The project experts can help the council in a difficult situation, tell where to go and how to organize the search. Blogosphere and social networks On popular in Russia bloghostingah and in social networks there are no significant (and noteworthy) communities that help in the search for missing people. And this is despite the fact that social networks are inherently "search engines for people" - but they are looking for mostly classmates and classmates, comrades in the army or friends of childhood. As a last resort - new pleasant acquaintances, but in any way not missing children. But this does not mean that blogs and social services when looking for a missing child should be ignored. It's not for nothing that Bloglov is called "citizen journalists": often the resonance created in the blogosphere about an event becomes much more powerful than if we mention this event in the media. In addition, although blogs themselves are not media, they are increasingly being used as a source of information by journalists. If you have a blog, safely write in it about the loss, lay out as much information as possible: when the child was gone, where he was last seen, where he lives, where he could go or go, what he was wearing. Be sure to attach a picture of the child to the description, or better - a few, so that unfamiliar people can recognize it. Do not be afraid to ask for help to spread the information of your virtual and real friends and acquaintances: believe me, no one in this situation will not consider your actions intrusive. Do not hesitate to ask for help from popular bloggers-thousandaires and ask them to publish information about the missing child (or give a link to your post). The more Internet users learn about the problem - the more likely it is that it can help. The main thing is not to forget to lay out as much information as possible and leave your contacts, which you can contact with if you are not on the Web. And even if among those who read your request for help, there will not be people who saw your child or know where he could disappear, it is still useful - you can be helped by advice, tell where to turn to act as quickly as possible . And the efficiency in such situations, that and say, is important. It's one thing if a five-year-old kid is lost, lost in a store or subway. But if a teenager has left the house and the teenager has not returned, the first couple of days no outsiders will become very worried about this: some young ladies and boys are characterized by such actions. No, of course, the statement in the police department will be accepted by you. But for the first couple of days law enforcement officers can search for the missing teenager, as they say, "over the sleeve": simply because "leaving home" for some teenagers is a common form of protest against something. Such arguments are not without foundation: children can "protest", forget Call and just do not think that someone is worried about their absence. But this, alas, just an excuse, and not an excuse to relax.
