    This stark number may surprise you, but over 800,000 children are reported missing in the U.S. every year- that's roughly 2,000 children a day! There is a silver lining: Amber Alerts reduced the number of missing children last year by around 11,800. So the next time your phone buzzes at 4 am, don't grumble! We probably just saved a child.
