STAGGERING NUMBERS: A girl lying in a hammock at a slum area in New Delhi. Many of the country's missing children come from poor rural areas or urban slums where they are at high risk.

NEW DELHI: The government has launched a "Lost and Found" website to help families trace the tens of thousands of children in the country who go missing every year – often abducted for forced labour or sexual exploitation – and are never found. 

The "Khoya Paya", or "Lost and Found", website khoyapaya.gov.in was launched by Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi, who said the portal would allow parents to register details of missing children and citizens to report sightings.
