The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) maintains a database of missing kids. There are currently about 50 children from Wisconsin who have been reported missing. Some of the kids have been missing for just weeks, some of them, years.
"What happens with a story like this, children naturally start asking who else is missing. Are there other children out there with this situation,” said Angeline Hartmann, director of media for the NCMEC. “Sadly, I can tell you right now, there is a child who is being held against their will in a similar situation."
The organization works to bring awareness to every missing child, even though some cases (like Jayme Closs’) get more attention from the media.
