Missing Childrens Map Launched by Ekamtech

June 01, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Ekamtech, a search engine marketing and web design company, has used Google's mapping technologies to improve the possibility of missing and exploited children being found. The map data, provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), is updated frequently. State maps show the missing children from each state and a national map shows all the recently missing children.

Profiles of each missing child can be found by clicking on each map's markers. Profiles include the child's name, circumstances of the child's disappearance and who to call if the child is seen. The profile also shows the child's most recent picture, an age progression picture, if available, and a link to the NCMEC profile of the missing child, which includes additional information to the viewer.

Ekamtech built the site as a public service and to display the powerful features of mapping technologies. Their hope is that it will contribute to missing children being repatriated with their families.
