Unit Description

The Child Abduction Response (CART) / Missing Persons Team is responsible for coordinating and directing the appropriate law enforcement response for finding missing endangered persons and abducted children.  “Endangered” is defined as a person who is believed to have a mental, intellectual, or developmental disability and/or a health related issue that goes missing under circumstances that indicate that the person may be in danger of death or serious bodily injury.

The CART / Missing Persons Team collaborates with state, county and local law enforcement agencies and the media to safely return the missing. The Team, in collaboration with the Middlesex County Office of Emergency Management (OEM), also coordinates the response of a volunteer tracking dog handler and his highly trained bloodhounds.
