Hello Everyone at MiLB and MiLB Charities, and AMI Graphics!

We just received our updated statistics from the NCMEC in Washington DC! Please see the message we received below – this was made possible by all of you tremendous people throughout Minor League Baseball and AMI Graphics:

Hi Dennis,

Since August 2010 Bairfind has featured 3589 children, with 2703 recovered. Please note that due to the nature of the calls received through our call center regarding our posters, it is sometimes difficult to determine exactly where the person may have seen the poster; however, we feel that the more exposure our posters receive the more likely it is that someone will recognize a child and lead to a recovery. We appreciate your continued support. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

A 75% recovery rate – amazing! Thank you all for a great year, next year will be our 10th anniversary as a 501c3 and our 5th season as an Official “Homegrown” Charity of MiLB, which has resulted in millions and millions of views on kids’ profiles in MiLB ballparks across the nation. Without you and the front office staffs of each team, none of this would have ever materialized. May 2020 be the best year yet for all of us!

More eyes looking means more children found
More eyes looking
means more children found
BairFind crowdsources the search for missing children by putting their profile picture in highly trafficked public places like Minor League Baseball stadiums.
Last year, 428 missing children were safely located out of the profiles featured by BairFind.

Founder Dennis Bair stands with the family of missing child Mark Degner at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, home of the Jumbo Shrimp (Miami Marlins' Double-A affiliate, Southern League ).
How it works
We have signs in 152 baseball and basketball stadiums generating 35 million views of missing child photos.
A child goes missing. How does BairFind get more views on the child's profile?
Your donation helps us construct a sign featuring the area's missing children
The signs are placed in sports stadiums in front of millions of fans to see.
Someone recognizes a missing child and they are safely located.
Message from the founder
Dear visitors,
As a minor-league pitcher for the Chicago Cubs, I spent most of my career tuning out the crowd so I could attack each batter with a laser-like focus.
But after watching a documentary about a mother's and father's effort to spread the word about their missing daughter, my view from the mound changed. I realized the stadium wasn't just filled with sports fans--these were the teachers, coaches, families, classmates and friends of missing children that would readily join in the search if they could. That moment inspired me to start The BairFind Foundation.
Since that day, we've partnered with Minor League Baseball to place photos of hundreds of our nation's missing kids in front of literally tens of millions of Americans in stadiums and arenas across the country at no cost to the families. Every glance at one of these photos is another opportunity for a child to be reunited with his or her family. Our success is measured by the countless stories of children that we've featured who have been safely located, and we've only just begun.
Sincerely,

Dennis Bair
