About us

Association of Volunteer Organizations " Search for Missing Children" (AVOSMC)  unites 60 volonteer search organizations around Russia and organizations of Ukraine and the Republic of Belarus at international scale. We believe that  every child must be found!  

Our results

Over the Association’s five years of activities, we have helped find over 3000 children and, incidentally, 600 adults. Moreover, more than 200 raids have been carried out to fight child exploitation. Every day, the Association handles around 150 search cases.

We belong to expert councils of the Civic Chamber, the Russian Investigative Committee and the Russian Federation Ministry of Internal Affairs. In close cooperation with the Russian Ministry for Emergencies and the Russian Union of Rescuers, we hold first aid courses, training sessions for search volunteers, safety workshops and lectures for children. We also organize charity events. For instance, we are the first Russian organization to take part in the annual International Missing Children's Day.


We are on duty 24/7. Whenever a search is under way, we always coordinate our efforts with the police. Search cases have no period of limitation.

Any search includes several steps:

• 24/7 intake of reports on missing people (by hotline or online).

• Legal comfirmation of searches and further coordination of every action with the police.

• Psychological counselling and advisory and legal support for the missing person’s relatives.

• collection and maximum distribution of information on the missing person on the Internet and in the media

• Posting of all-points bulletins in the search area and interviewing of local people.

• Combing of the area, using special equipment and in cooperation with professional search and rescue teams.

• Psychological rehabilitation of found persons; preventing children from running away and deviant behaviour.
