WESR PALM BEACH, Fla. - Since the search for Jimmy Ryce started in 1995, Nancy McBride with the local Missing and Exploited Children organization, has gotten to know Jimmy's parents. She helped them make this flyer for the community to help find the little boy.
After the arrest in the case, McBride remained in contact with the parents. They joined forces spearheading changes in improving the ways missing children are found. Improving training and awareness with the help of law enforcement officials.
McBride said, "In 1997 we had our first ceo training for the sheriffs and chiefs of police. We just did our 150th training. We've done over 300-thousand law enforcement and judicial people that a tremendous legacy. And we are so proud, we are proud of what we have been able to do."
In addition, the Jimmy Ryce Foundation donates bloodhound dogs to law enforcement around the state to help find missing children.
