When it comes to missing children, time is of the essence. The ADAM Program helps locate missing children — fast — using our innovative technology to distribute posters with a photo and details about a missing child to police, news media, schools businesses, medical centers and individuals within a specific, targeted geographic area. Designed, donated and managed by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, the ADAM Program has helped in the recovery of over 180 missing children.
How it works
STEP 1: NCMEC sends a photo of a missing child incident and important details — including geographic areas to target — to ADAM.
STEP 2: The ADAM technology searches a database of possible alert recipients and narrows down to only those who are located within the targeted search area.
STEP 3: ADAM transmits the data and photo of the missing child to targeted recipients.
The ADAM Program enhances our photo distribution efforts by rapidly distributing images and information about missing children to targeted areas. The program is a key component of our recovery efforts.
