Who We Are

Nevada Child Seekers, a registered nonprofit organization, created in 1985, and incorporated in 1996. We are the only nonprofit, missing children’s organization in Nevada and we do not charge for our services. We diligently work to keep parents closely involved in their cases and are available to assist the proper authorities.

Reasons to Donate

In Nevada, there are approximately 7,000 children reported missing each year according to the Nevada Missing Children’s Clearinghouse, Nevada Office of the Attorney General. These alarming statistics come from the National Crime Information Center, a law enforcement database. It further indicates that over 200 of the children are considered to be “endangered” by law enforcement and over 100 are missing involuntarily.
