Last Tuesday night at the Gramercy Park Hotel Rooftop, Carole Holmes McCarthy hosted a private dinner to introduce some prospective supporters to Ernie Allen, President of the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The Center is a global network of organizations fighting child-sexual exploitation and abduction.

In 1996, Belgium was shaken by the tragic “Dutroux Affair”. Over the course of many years, Marc Dutroux, an unemployed electrician and father of three, committed a series of kidnappings, rapes, and killings of an unknown number of teenage girls.
As the atrocity of the crimes was disclosed, the public became very critical of the way the authorities handled the case. More than 300,000 Belgian citizens expressed their anger in the now-legendary “White March,” and shortly thereafter, Belgian Prime Minister Dehaene visited The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

He asked NCMEC’s President, Ernie Allen, if he would establish a Center in Brussels at which point Ernie answered, “You do not need an American solution to this problem – you need a Belgian solution. But we will help.” And NCMEC worked with the Belgian government, private sector leaders, victim parents, and law enforcement to create the Brussels-based Child Focus.

Other countries began visiting NCMEC and asking for help and while NCMEC was able to provide assistance through training, technical assistance, and support, it was difficult for the organization to become too involved in international programs and operations without diverting time and resources from its core mission of serving America’s missing and exploited children.

In May 1997, the NCMEC Board of Directors authorized the creation of The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC). ICMEC’s Board of Directors held its first meeting in May 1998, and ICMEC was officially launched in April 1999 at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C.

ICMEC works to identify and coordinate a global network of organizations fighting child-sexual exploitation and abduction. ICMEC’s work brings promise to children and families by:

Establishing global resources to find missing children and prevent child sexual exploitation;

Creating national operational centers and affiliates worldwide;

Building an international network to disseminate images of and information about missing and exploited children;

Providing training to law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, legal professionals, nongovernmental organizations, and government officials;

Advocating and proposing legislative changes in laws, treaties, and systems to protect children worldwide;

Conducting international expert conferences to build awareness, encourage and increase cooperation and collaboration between and among countries; and

Working alongside the financial industry and law enforcement to combat commercial child sexual exploitation.
