PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) May 20, 2019
When it comes to missing children, time is of the essence. The ADAM (Automated Delivery of Alerts on Missing Children) Program helps locate missing children--fast--through innovative technology that distributes posters with a photo and details about the missing child to the police, news media, schools, businesses, medical centers and individuals within a specific, targeted geographic area.
This season on Tomorrow’s World Today, field reporter Jackie Long visits the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to learn about the ADAM Program and how LexisNexis® Risk Solutions created and manages the technology behind it. The unfortunate reality is that children do go missing every day, which is why LexisNexis® Risk Solutions partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to create this program.
“As a company, we really strive to help the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in its mission to help bring missing children home,” said Trish McCall, director of program management, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “I am very proud of everything we have accomplished with The ADAM Program since its inception nearly 20 years ago, it is such a rewarding feeling to see how the program helps reunite families.”
Tomorrow’s World Today, which was nominated for a 2019 Daytime Emmy, returns to Science Channel for season two this month. Viewers can tune in every Saturday and Sunday morning in May to watch back-to-back new episodes.
