Six More Louisiana Kids Have Disappeared Since June 1
In a perfect world, most teens would be living their life adjusting to a new school year and possibly complaining about the heat on their school bus.
Obviously, we don't live in that "perfect world." While those kids might be having a tough time locating new classrooms and trying to squeeze in extracurricular activities like band, cheerleading or sports, there are some kids who might not even know where they are or where their next meal might come from.
There are those 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 certainly aren't immune to it here in the Bayou State. According to missingkids.org we have had a total of 23 Louisiana children reported missing so far in 2023.
23 Louisiana Kids Have Been Reported Missing Since January 1 2023
Read that one again. It's a totally unacceptable number. The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children reports that 23 Louisiana children have disappeared in the period from January 1, 2023 through August 16, 2023.
Six of those kids have disappeared just since June 1. Some might argue, correctly, that some of these kids intentionally ran away, but the fact remains that trafficking and other evil intentions are the root for a vast majority of these missing children.
Please take a close look at these six 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.
