The founder, John Guydon, created Lassy Project after being part of the 2012 search for a missing child in his neighborhood called Jessica Ridgeway. Unfortunately it was too late and she was found murdered. She was 10 years old.
As a father of two young girls himself, John wanted to create something to reduce the chances of this happening again.
When a child is abducted, if they’re not found within the first 3 hours there’s a 75% chance they’re never coming home. It takes the police 4 hours to issue an Amber Alert. This delay is too long! With the Lassy Project, a parent can notify their entire local community within seconds.
So far, Lassy Project has users in over 2400 zip codes. This is increasing every day as more and more parents sign up.
The mother of murdered child Jessica Ridgeway has joined the Lassy Project team and we’re collaborating with Law Enforcement agencies to help them find lost children, faster.
It's a completely free service right now and the more parents that sign up, the safer our world will be for our children.
