NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING AND EXPLOITED CHILDREN (NCMEC):

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization. Since 1984, NCMEC has served as the national clearinghouse and resource center for families, victims, private organizations, law enforcement and the public on issues relating to missing and sexually exploited children.

In March 1998, NCMEC launched their CyberTipline. The CyberTipline provides the public and electronic service providers (ESPs) with the ability to report online (and via toll-free telephone) instances of online enticement of children for sexual acts, extra-familial child sexual molestation, child pornography, child sex tourism, child sex trafficking, unsolicited obscene materials sent to a child, misleading domain names, and misleading words or digital images on the Internet. NCMEC continuously reviews CyberTipline reports to ensure that reports of children who may be in imminent danger get first priority. After NCMEC’s review is completed, all information in a CyberTipline report is made available to law enforcement.

Members of the public are encouraged to report information regarding possible child sexual exploitation to the CyberTipline.
There are two ways to make a report. You can call 1-800-843-5678 or go to https://report.cybertip.org/
