Taking part in the Kansas City event known as “The Big Search KC,” hundreds of volunteers helped find six missing children Friday and reunite them with their families. The Big Search is a three-day event organized by almost a dozen organization to raise awareness for missing persons cases in the city.

“Most people don’t realize how many missing there are. It’s not just children; there are more adults missing than children,” Maureen Reintjes of Missouri Missing said. “I had a loved one missing and that was back in 2005. Since that time, it has been very important to me to help get families missing loved ones back home.”

On Friday, the second day of the search, the hundreds of volunteers involved in the search took to area parks, handing out booklets with photos of 32 missing children and generating leads. Eventually, before the end of the day, six out of the 32 kids were found, Fox4KC reported.

“One couple did recognize a couple of the girls in the book,” volunteer Denise Lester said. “They mentioned they saw two girls in the park. They came in with a guy, went into the bathroom, changed clothes and then went back out. We are a little concerned what that might be.”

This is the second year that Big Search KC. Since its inaugural event last year, 20 children included in its booklets have been found safe. The full listing of missing children from this year's event can be found here.
