At the NCMEC you can go to the search options for a missing child and select a possible location where they may have traveled or been abducted to depending on their circumstances. Selecting Mexico will return 58 missing children while the same search for Canada returns 12.
What determines the possible location is not explained. In some cases when viewing the poster of the missing child there is often no mention of where they are traveling to or why they may be headed to a specific State or Country.
In other instance the locations may be listed on the poster but not returned in a search. For example if you search for 3-year-old Karissah Butler and view her poster, it states she may be headed to Rhode Island or Canada. Select the possible location of Rhode Island and her results are returned. However, select Canada and they are not.
Select information for 4-year-old Danielle Jimenez with Mexico as a possible location and her results are returned. But, even though she was allegedly abducted by her father from Texas and her poster indicates she may be in Del Rio, Tx, if you enter Texas as a possible location, no information will be returned.
In the case of, Iumila Vasquez who was allegedly abducted by her non-custodial mother from Plainfield New Jersey, her poster suggests she may be traveling to Georgia which will display her results if entered. Results will also display should you enter a possible location of New York but her poster makes no mention of New York.
This could prove to be a great tool to check identities of missing children crossing state lines or countries borders provided the information is accurate. Unfortunately, there appears to be some issues currently.
