Main St. 706-637'8683 Sheriff S00Jpporting Child Sea.00'ch Plan Troup County Sheriff Donny Turner announced Friday that the Sheriff's Office is partnering wit A Child Is Missing, Inc. as a network tool in recovering missing children, the elderly (Alzheimer's patients) and the disabled. This is a rapid response communication network which is capable of making up to 1,000 telephone calls in the first minute after the report is taken. Law enforcement will identify the geographic area in the neighborhood where the search should begin. The law enforcement officer then makes a call to the A Child Is Missing Center as soon as the appropriate informa- tion is gathered about the missing individual. The center will begin calling residents at home as well as businesses with a recorded message from the Sheriff's Office in the surround- ing area describing the missing individual. They are asked to call if they see or know anything about the disappearance. Law enforcement uses Levi's Call now only when a child has been abducted to broadcast the information on televi- sion as well as radio. A Child Is Missing is another valuable tool available to law enforcement to help recover those miss- ing. FBI statistics indicate 2,000 to 3,000 children and elder- ly are reported missing daffy nationwide. A Child Is Missing is a non-profit organization based in Fort Lauderdale, FL that was founded in 1996. "We are very proud of our partnership with this great organization. Our partnership with A Child Is Missing will allow us as well as the, police departments in LaGrange, Hogansville and West Point to have access to this valuable tool," said Sheriff Turner.
