A wave of fear has gripped the masses following the rumors of kidnapping of children from Karachi and other parts of Sindh circulating in social media.
According to the CPLC record, incidents of missing children from Karachi have not been on the rise recently. Total number of reported missing children cases from January, 2016 to to-date are 136. Out of which, 111 children has been re-united with their families after being traced out or self-returned. Cases of 25 children are under process. It is pertinent to mention here that not all of the missing children are kidnapped, most of these children fled from domestic violence and other problems.
During 2015, 199 missing children cases were reported and all of them were located. The figures do not justify the panic in Karachi / Sindh as most of the missing children are reunited with their respective families.
