As the latest news headlines out of Cleveland indicate, missing children can be found even after several years have passed.

In Youngstown, police have around two dozen cases of missing children and all of them reportedly started as runaways, some dating back to 2012.

Investigators said not every child disappearance case leads to the issuance of an “Amber Alert” but there are other tools police can use.

“We just recently put out an Endangered Child Alert. We got a bunch of responses from that, got some sightings of where the child was and who she may have been with. Then, that child was recovered,” said Det. Sgt. Dave Lomax.

Lomax said as more details emerge from the Amanda Berry case and the other women who were held captive in Cleveland, the incident could provide useful information for police departments investigating missing person cases.
