Along with Memorial Day, today is National Missing Person's Day. Members of the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office helped spread awareness. They handed out free child ID kits and safety information at the Wal-Mart on Carolina Beach Road. The event is part of the Take 25 program to heighten awareness about children's safety. Officers encouraged parents to take a kit for each child, fill out the child's information, and keep it at home in case of emergency. "It only takes a minute to fill out, it'll help you find your kid, in case the worst nightmare of a parent ever happens and your child disappears, it'll track them down," said Stacy Davis of Carolina Beach. President Reagan proclaimed today National Missing Person's Day in 1983 to serve as an annual reminder about missing children and to make child protection a national priority. In conjunction with National Missing Person's Day, the Cue Center for Missing Persons is holding a fundraiser at Chili’s restaurant in Wilmington. The Cue Center said they have exhausted their funds searching for missing children, so Chili’s has agreed to donate ten percent of Monday's sales to Cue, from any customer who mentions the Cue fundraiser to their waiter or waitress. "People have kids people have people who are missing in their lives, so anything we can do to help support and facilitate that, we are open and willing to do," said Chili’s Manager James Duley. It's not to late to get a great meal at Chili’s while helping Cue. The event lasts until 11:00 tonight. If you can't make it to Chili’s, you can go to ncmissingpersons.org.
