According to FBI.gov, in 2012 there were 476,373 missing children (under 18 years of age) is the U.S. Recent statistics from the US Dept. of Education show that 30% if students are bullies or victims of bullies and approximately 160,000 children stay home from school for fear of being bullied. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reports that 93% of children ages 10-17 go online and 1 in 25 children ages 10 to 17 received an online sexual solicitation where the solicitor tried to make offline contact. According to usa.gov, 1 in 5 kids online has been sexually solicited and less than 10% of those solicitations are reported to authorities.
