Child Locator Unit

The Child Locator Unit was established to develop and implement protocols to assist child welfare workers and law enforcement in locating children who run away or are missing from their foster care placement, to explore the child's reason for leaving care, to determine the child's experiences while absent from care and to screen for child trafficking.

To report a missing foster child contact Centralized Intake at 1-800-352-6513.
