Missing Children: From Walt Disney Cartoons to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

Tuesday, January 25 • 11:45 AM — 12:45 PM—

Daniel Broughton, Mayo Clinic Child and Advocacy Program

Looking at the missing children issue as presented by Walt Disney cartoons.
Looking at the issue and the response to it as understood today.

The issue of missing children exploded on the American scene in the early 1980's with the media attention given to such high profile kidnapping cases as Etan Patz, Adam Walsh and Jacob Wetterling. Prior to that time little was known about the issue and there was no organized response to such episodes.

However, long before this time Walt Disney dealt with the issue in is cartoons starting with Snow White in 1937 with surprising sophistication. Since the 1980's a great deal has been learned about the complexity of this issue as studies showed the problem goes well beyond stereotypic kidnappings. The appropriate response must be adapted to each individual case but all must be treated as serious and possibly life threatening. The response by law enforcement and those involved in missing child cases also has changed as more information has become available.

Technology has played a major role in these changes. This talk will explore the way Walt Disney portrayed the problem and how it has changed in the light of intense media attention and technologic advances.
