One child goes missing every forty seconds in the United States but only 34 percent of parents know their child’s exact height, weight and eye color according to recent statistics. Law enforcement officials say having up-to-date photos and other important information available to take to authorities can make a major difference when a child disappears. To that end, a Jerseyville attorney is joining forces with Jerseyville Banking Center to host “Just Be Safe” Child ID and Protection Day on Sunday, November 23rd.

Jeff Roberts, President of Roberts Law LLC says more than 800,000 children go missing every year, which makes events like this crucial to recovering those children. ‘’

The event on November 23rd will run from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Father Hembrow Center Cafeteria in Jerseyville.  For more information call Roberts at 618-639-0461
