AR Family Promotes ID Kits for Children

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. - The Hot Springs Police Department is joining forces with a family who's been missing a loved one for more than 30 years.

Jeffrey Lynn Smith was 15 when she disappeared back in 1985. 

The family has not stopped searching for her. They believe she may not be alive but they're not giving up hope. 

Now, they wanting every child to have an ID kit - in case they go missing. 

"The main purpose of the event is to highlight the missing children in Arkansas and help bring light to my sister who is still missing," says Lisa Allen.

An event is set for next Friday and Saturday at Hot Springs Mall.

Full event information:
Child Safety Event in Memory of Jeffrey Lynn Smith
Location: Hot Springs Mall
Dec. 22-23, 4 p.m. - 9 p.m.

One of the most important tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child is an up-to-date, good quality photo along with descriptive information. A Child ID kit is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain current photos of and descriptive information about their children.

Please come out to get a FREE ID kit for your child, grandchild, or other young relative.

We will also introduce you to a new app from Safety Central – NCMEC (if you prefer a digital ID kit). You can then store all of your child information securely on your phone.

In a crisis, the information can be shared fast and seamlessly with Law Enforcement and others.

At the event, we will handout other resource materials (provided by the Morgan Nick Foundation) and also have posters of Arkansas Missing children on display. Please help us bring them home.

Event is hosted by: Consultants from Team HOPE and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in conjunction with the Hot Springs Police Department.
