ADAM: Automated Delivery of Alerts on Missing Children

The ADAM Program quickly distributes missing child posters from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® to specific geographic search areas.

How The Program Works 

NCMEC transmits to ADAM

STEP 1: NCMEC sends a photo of a missing child and important case details - including geographic areas to target for poster distribution - to ADAM.
examines a database

STEP 2: The ADAM technology matches the geo-targeted area selected by NCMEC with its recipient database, resulting in a list of businesses and individuals who will receive
the missing child poster.
ADAM transmits the data and photo of the missing child to targeted recipients.

STEP 3: ADAM transmits the missing child poster to
targeted recipients.
