Sunnier Side of the Office – May 22, 2019


"We know that it only takes one person to find a missing child. Last year, NCMEC assisted law enforcement with over 25,000 cases of missing children, the vast majority were runaways. This video is a game changer. It highlights critical issues runaways face and will show real pictures of missing children. By creating and sharing this video, everyone has the ability to make a difference in their communities. It's truly incredible." 

- John Clark, NCMEC President and CEO

National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Runaway Train 25

25 years ago, one music video helped recover 21 missing children. In the late 1990s, The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), Soul Asylum, and director Tony Kaye created the ground-breaking “Runaway Train” music video, which featured images of actual missing children in the United States.

If one music video could help recover 21 missing children, how many can we bring home with the power of new technology and social media?

For the 25th anniversary, we collaborated with Jamie N Commons, Skylar Grey, and Gallant to remix Soul Asylum’s hit song Runaway Train. But it’s more than just a cover song – it’s a music video designed not just for watching, but for bringing home real missing kids near you.

61% of recovered children reported to NCMEC are found in the state in which they were missing. The #RunawayTrain25 music video shows images of real missing children in your area. Share the film with your social network, and they will see missing kids from their area.

It only takes one person to find a missing kid. Help us bring them home.


NCMEC participates in the AMBER Alert Program, a voluntary partnership between broadcasters, transportation agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the wireless industry to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child abduction cases. NCMEC serves as the secondary distributor of these alerts and, to date, 957 children have been successfully recovered as a result of the AMBER Alert program, including 56 recoveries credited to the wireless emergency alert program.
