According to the website,, 1,277 children under the age of 21, have disappeared since January 1 here in America.

Considering the crippling problem of human trafficking that has put a grip on our country over the last few years, one would fear the absolute worst for the lion-share of these beautiful children.


Obviously, there are some who have disappeared of their own will, but many others might not even know where they are or where their next meal might come from.

Some are children who have been traded or sold like livestock and being forced into doing ungodly things just to stay alive.

The issue is certainly of national concern and we aren't immune to it here in the Bayou State.  According to we have had a total of 24 Louisiana children reported missing so far in 2023.

Of those missing twenty-four children, five have disappeared since August 1 alone.

Read that one again.  It's a totally unacceptable number.  The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children reports that five more Louisiana children have disappeared in the past six weeks in the period from August 1, 2023 through September 28, 2023.

Please take a close look at these five innocent faces and if you happen to recognize one, immediately call 911 and report it.  You never know how great the impact of your call might make to a child being held against their will.

The 5 Louisiana Kids Who've Disappeared Since August 1, 2023

In the extremely violent world we live in today, it's horrifying to think of another child who's possibly been taken by someone and sold into sex slavery or any other evil reason. Please see their photos and if you happen to see them or know the whereabouts of any of these children, immediately contact police to let them know.
