Fr. George P.S., BOSCO executive director: Tracing missing children is challenging as several parents don’t file police complaints even if their children go missing. There is need to step up budgetary allocation and provide resources so that missing children can be traced. As the process of tracing missing children is carried out by various departments, including the Women and Child Department, the police and various NGOs, there is nobody coming forward voluntarily to take ownership of this programme. This is a big problem and requires the State to take a proactive stance.
