Finding missing childrenADAM has helped in the recovery of hundreds or missing children.

The ADAM Program helps bring missing children home.

To date, ADAM has helped recover over 175 missing children.

Many missing children are recovered quickly, but others lead to searches that last for months, years, or even decades. This terrifying reality led a team of LexisNexis associates to work nights and weekends to develop the ADAM℠ (Automated Delivery of Alerts on Missing Children) program with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).

To date, the ADAM program has resulted in the recovery of over 175 missing children. ADAM uses advanced technology to distribute missing child posters to police, news media, schools, businesses, medical centers and other recipients within a specific geographic search area, such as a state, ZIP code, area code or a combined search area near a city and ZIP code.
