What is Michigan's Missing Child Information Clearinghouse?
Michigan's Missing Child Information Clearinghouse (MMCIC) operates as an information and referral resource to the public, local law enforcement, and other state clearinghouses. It provides information and guidance, where possible, to these entities. The clearinghouse oversees and ensures that law enforcement agencies follow the law as it relates to the immediate entry of missing children (under the age of 18) into Michigan's Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN)/National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system. It ensures that parents have followed all the proper procedures for reporting a missing child to their local police department and getting the child entered into LEIN/NCIC. Reports of runaway, parentally abducted or otherwise missing or exploited children are made directly to local law enforcement agencies.
