Find the Children is a nonprofit, missing children’s organization, founded in 1983, by the late
television producer, Linda Otto. Linda started Find the Children to promote communication between
local and federal law enforcement, the media, and the parents of abducted children. Linda produced
the film, “Adam,” which aired on television in 1983. The movie depicted the story about the
kidnapping and murder of her friend John Walsh’s son [Adam]. At the end of the movie, a photo roll
call of missing children played on the screen. As a result, several of the children were found. It was
the first time media was used to find missing children.
