Who We Are

A non-profit of former law enforcement officers and Navy SEALS-turned licensed, insured private investigators, SAVED IN AMERICA assists parents and law enforcement in locating missing and runaway children.

Our Mission

Locate. Your. Child.

At no charge to families, we work to locate missing and runaway children – one of the groups most vulnerable to sexual exploitation. For victims of exploitation, we assist in procuring legal representation, safe housing, and rehabilitative therapy.

Our Work

In the past 35 months, SIA has assisted in the investigation and locating of 46 children from California to Florida, finding them within an average of 9 days, and a cost of $5,000 per child.

The San Diego DA’s office estimates there are 2,500 runaway minors at any time in the County.


The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that within 48 hours of hitting the streets, one-third of these children are lured or recruited into the underground world of prostitution and pornography. 

48 Hours 

100% of the San Diego County schools studied, found that trafficking recruitment was occurring in their schools
