Missing children to be featured on gas pump video screens this month

State / Regional

(WKRG) — The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is working with San Francisco-based advertising agency MUH-TAY-ZIK/HOF-FER and the gas station video giant GSTV to feature missing children on gas pump video screens in markets across the U.S. during the month of July.

This is all part of the “Runaway Train” music video campaign that launched last year, remaking the 1993 hit song and featuring missing children based on the viewer’s location.

“NCMEC wants to remind and empower the public to be on the lookout this summer for missing children in their area,” a press release stated. “We know that all it takes is one person to pay attention, do the right thing and help bring a missing child home. For the families that NCMEC works with, this is an opportunity to generate new attention for their missing loved ones and garner new leads in their case.”

If you have information about a missing or exploited child, contact NCMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST or on social media @missingkids.
