Why Have 9 More Louisiana Kids Disappeared Since September?
What continues to happen to Louisiana's most vulnerable citizens?
Children are disappearing at an alarming rate!
According to the website, missingkids.org 1,439 children under the age of 21, have disappeared since January 1 here in America.
Considering the crippling problem of human trafficking that has gripped 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 missingkids.org we have had a total of 27 Louisiana children reported missing so far in 2023.
Of those missing twenty-seven children, nine have disappeared since September 1 alone.
Read that one again. It's a totally unacceptable number. The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children reports that nine more Louisiana children have disappeared in the period from September 1, 2023 through November 12, 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.
