The tragic abduction and murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh in 1981, as well as those of Etan Patz and Russel Mort brought national attention to the issues faced by the families of missing and exploited children. In response to this tragedy Adam’s parent’s John and Reve Walsh started what is now known as The National Center for the Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). In 2008, a local NCMEC office was established to serve the needs of children, parents, teachers, and law enforcement in the Capital Region.
