About Us

Founded in 2018 by returning Intelligence and Special Operations Veterans, F3 MCIA utilizes decades of Counterterrorism Targeting experience to directly solve and assist Law Enforcement with Missing Children’s cases. The U.S. averages approximately 500,000 missing children’s cases annually, ranging from parental obductions to human trafficking. The sheer volume and complexity of many of these cases means that domestic law enforcement is often overwhelmed.


F3 MCIA’s mission is to ensure that no parent is left without answers, and that no missing child’s case is forgotten. F3 MCIA ensures that “No Case Is Cold.”

Action Plan

Through modern intelligence methodologies and directly addressing underlying issues contributing to missing children, F3 MCIA has created an initiative to reduce the number of missing children’s cold cases by +80%, and the total number of missing children’s cases by +5000% within 5 years. The F3 MCIA roadmap to achieve these objectives involves staffing Homeland Security Fusion Centers throughout the U.S. with dedicated analysts specifically for missing children’s cases, training law enforcement across the nation in all-source intelligence / human targeting methodologies / utilization of modern technology / building a culture and technology solution to enhance intel sharing among law enforcement agencies at all levels.
