Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Office issues reminder to parents on child identification

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. - (Oct. 29, 2015 – With recent flash news alerts regarding missing children, teens, and others alike throughout the state, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to issue a reminder to all parents regarding the indentification of their children. 

Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. issued the following statement on Thursday:

When a child or someone you know is reported missing, emotions become raw, which can hinder the ability of parents or love ones to make rational decisions. Yet, their actions and the actions of law enforcement in the first 48 hours are critical to the safe recovery of a missing. Knowing what you can do, what others can do, and where to go for help will not only expedite the search and recovery of your child or love one, it also will help to ease the emotional and financial burden of the search.
