ChildRescue – Collective Awareness Platform for Missing Children Investigation and Rescue

ChildRescue is an ambitious project with a social impact that aims to assist the investigation of missing children and the discovery and identification of unaccompanied minors using state-of-the-art technologies and an innovative methodology.
The duration of the project is 3 years, from 01 Jan. 2018 to 31 Dec. 2020.

Concept – ChildRescue

The problem of missing children is a complex and multi-faceted phenomenon, comprising legal, psychological and sociological aspects, which are aggravated due to the imminent panic of the close environment of the missing person.

From the moment a child disappears, an intensive, yet typical, procedure is usually followed: Initially, a formal report is made by the family to the responsible authorities (in most cases to the police), in order to examine the conditions, the vulnerability and the risk level associated with the disappearance, before declaring the involved child as “missing”.

Then, search and rescue teams are composed with urgency, making available their assets, human resources and know-how. In cases of worrying or life threatening disappearances, the public is alerted through the National Public Emergency Broadcast System (TV and Radio spots, SMS, web directories of missing children and social media networks) and can provide critical information through hotline numbers.

When the case is resolved, it is archived by the involved organizations and the necessary support and assistance is provided to the person and its family in order to reconnect with a place of safety.
