MD Police Say Social Media Can Help Find Missing Children

Posted: Updated:

PIKESVILLE, Md. - Maryland State Police say that social media can play a huge part in locating missing children.

According to reports, one in every three of Maryland's missing children are found because someone has seen and recognized their photos.

For this reason, they have a Facebook and Twitter feed, both designed to raise awareness and participation in their searches.

The Twitter account is used just for Amber Alerts, while the Facebook page addresses cold cases, in addition to Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts, and much more.

The face book page receives an average of 150,000 views per day.

To view the Maryland Center For Missing and Unidentified Persons Facebook page and Twitter account, look under 47 Weblinks.
