The Fourth Annual Florida Missing Children’s Day Ceremony was held at the State Capitol in Tallahassee on Monday, September 9, 2002. Missing Children’s Day is a time of remembrance for the missing children of Florida. Each year thousands of children disappear by abduction, as runaways, or are being abandoned.

Section 683.23, Florida Statutes, designates the second Monday in September of each year as "Florida Missing Children’s Day" in remembrance of Florida’s past and present missing children and in recognition of our state’s continued efforts to protect the safety of children through prevention, education, and community involvement.

The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Division of Florida Highway Patrol, was one of the recipients of the 2002 Public Service Awards. The award was given to the Department for our work in expanding the Florida Amber Plan to include the use of our *FHP system for motorists to report suspect vehicles during an Amber Plan activation.
