On International Missing Children’s Day 25 May 2012 we will join Stephen Fry in helping to safely reconnect missing children by taking part in the charity Missing People’s Big Tweet for Missing Children.

The charity will be tweeting a different appeal for a missing child every 30 minutes for 24 hours. We are supporting this creative digital campaign by retweeting the appeals that Missing People tweet to their followers.

Stephen Fry, a patron of Missing People said, “A staggering 140,000 children go missing in the UK every year. On International Missing Children’s Day (Friday 25 May), I will once again join the charity Missing People in harnessing the power of Twitter to help find missing children via The Big Tweet for Missing Children. You can take part too, by retweeting the appeals for missing children that the charity will tweet every 30 minutes.

On this day, the charity will also be launching 116 000 – the new hotline number to call or text for support if you or someone you love goes missing. So please add #116000 to all your tweets and help to spread the word about this important new number. You never know when someone you love might need it.”

On this day, the charity will also be working with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and PACT to launch a new Missing Kids website.

Liz Horn of WebsEdge said: “We are delighted to be able to support this important campaign and to encourage our followers on Twitter to do the same. It would be wonderful if we could bring a child to safety on International Missing Children’s Day. ”
