Major Increase in Missing Children

According to the national police services (KLPD) there has been a major increase in the number of children missing in the Netherlands. There are presently 604 children missing as opposed to 353 in January 2007. The KLPD says that the increase derives mainly from children being kidnapped by parents and smuggled abroad.

LostNMissing, ran by a gal who makes banners for the Lost and Missing, has been entered into a contest on Twitter.

If she ends up in the final twenty, she will have a huge spotlight put on her work that highlights the Lost and Missing.

I run and was contacted by one of her people.

The Twitter page keeps giving people a hard time opening and a lot of people give up trying to vote. As a result, all the pretty girls that are in it just for fame are winning. Some already famous people are in the contest too, like Oprah.

People can vote twice an hour, and the contest ends, June 8, 2009.

Information can be found on a page of mine:

Thanks for any help,
