“Police find 22 missing children and disabled people with 100 days intensive investigation

(Seoul-Yonhap News) Kwon, Yeong-jeon, a police officer, has conducted a 100-day intensive investigation into children and disabled persons who have been missing for over a year.

The National Police Agency said on July 4 that a team of long-term missing persons investigated 418 cases of long-term missing children and persons with disabilities during the 100-day period from August 14 to 21 last month, and found 16 children and 6 disabled people.

Among them, there was a possibility that a brother and sister who was missing in 1982 could have been adopted overseas, and there were cases in which he confirmed the adoption by executing a search warrant to the Holt Child Welfare Foundation, the adoption agency.

He also found a 14-year-old child missing in December 2013 and arrested a man who was protecting the child without reporting it, for violating the Act on Protection and Support of Missing Children and Others.

The team also stopped investigating the disappearances of 27 missing children and disabled people at the request of the family. It is the case that the family does not want to investigate disappearances due to various situation changes such as parents’ death or change of family structure.

The long-term team will continue investigating the case for more than a year with the disappearance of children and the disabled.

Police said they will cooperate with relevant agencies, such as revising the Special Act on Adoption to secure overseas adoption data.
