About MYCHIP: MYCHIP (Masonic Youth Child Identification Program) has identified more than
300,000 children since its inception in 1988, and it continues to assist families today.
The program provides tools to help law enforcement authorities find and identify a lost or missing child. None of the information is copied and all the identifying materials are given to the child’s family.
The MYCHIP program is free and offers the following materials:
VIDEO: A brief video interview can be quickly distributed to the media in order to reach a huge audience.
FINGERPRINTING: Fingerprinting is a well-known means of identification. Resourceful parents keep fingerprints available should the need arise.
