TULSA — The Tulsa County Sherriff's Office is advising parents to get the Child Identification Handbook at the Tulsa State Fair.
In the handbook, officials have listed procedures in the event your child is missing.
Here are a few of the definite steps to take before notifying law enforcement agencies in your area:
1. You should utilize the telephone to make inquiries from every possible source of information on the child's whereabouts.
2. If transportation is available, an exhaustive search of the area, including school grounds, playgrounds, recreation and amusement areas, games arcades and other places the child and his or her friends may frequent.
3. Every current friend, followed by former friends, should be called. Every relative, starting with local and continuing to distant relatives, should also be contacted.
Parents can pick up the handbook at the 2 Works for You booth located on the upper-level of the River Spirit Expo.
