The child did not return home, what to do: a step-by-step instruction for parents
The child did not return home, his phone does not answer mdash; Here it is, a nightmare of any parent. From this situation, no one is immune. In the morning everything was as usual, and in the evening, instead of the usual. How are things at school? , you panic looking at the clock and swallowing a sedative, again and again hearing in the tube: Subscriber pose zonoyu dosyazhnosti.
The child could just go for a walk with his friends and lose track of time. And maybe he really had trouble.
The head of the juvenile police Larisa Zub told UaUa.info how to act to parents if their child is missing.
Head of Juvenile Police of Ukraine
If the child is small, or there is information that a crime has occurred, the district department is alerted by alarm, other police departments, volunteers are enlisted, we are attracting the public through social networks. We do our best to find a child and give it to our parents.
1. Call friends and relatives
First of all, you need to ring all the child's contacts that you know: friends, relatives, with whom he is on good terms. We had a situation when a teenager, having quarreled with his mother, went to Kharkov to visit his aunt. He was looking for the whole of Kiev, and it never occurred to anyone that he could have this aunt until mom remembered her and called her.
Ideally, if you are in a relationship with a child, you know its old and new friends, you have their phones. You know where they usually spend their time and what they do. All this will greatly facilitate the search.
It happens that after discovering the loss of a child, parents do not immediately turn to the police. We still have the old myth that searches for missing people begin only three days after the loss. Therefore, parents either try to cope on their own, or simply expect that the child will walk and return.
In fact, the search for children should be carried out in hot pursuit, and the sooner you contact the police, the more chances that the child will be all right.
