No one wants to think that
the unimaginable could happen to them, but according to statistics, nearly 2,000 children are reported missing or abducted each day in the United States. Gathering all of the information law
enforcement officials need after the fact can be a daunting task, especially under duress.
"MOCHIP is one of the most comprehensive
Child Recovery and Identification programs in the Nation" The National Center for Missing ∓ Exploited Children
This program is
provided "FREE OF CHARGE"
The program consists of five major
* Digital Photographs
* Digital Fingerprints
* Child Information and Emergency contacts
* Dental bite impression
* Two (2) laminated ID cards
Together, these five measures provide a powerful identification and recovery tool.
The digital photographs, digital
fingerprints and Child Information and emergency contacts are given to the parent or guardian of the child on a mini-CD computer disk. The information on the disk is compatible with the format
required by the "AMBER ALERT" program.
The dental bite impression
provides an impression of the biting surface of the child's teeth, which like fingerprints, are unique to each individual. The dental impression collects enough saliva to provide a DNA sample and a
source for a scent for trained canine search and recovery teams.
The Masonic Children’s Foundation
retains no information concerning the children; only a signed permission form is retained by the Foundation.
