Description

Child safety advocates say that a child is lost in the U.S. every 40 seconds. It often takes hours for them to be found and reunited with a parent. The Early Show did an experiment with a child actor in a New York City park and found that more people stopped to help a lost dog than a lost child. Experts say people are often afraid to approach strange children in public for fear of being misidentified as paedophiles.
