Missing Children And Missing Web Pages

We have, sadly, become all too familiar with those public service messages describing missing children on milk cartons and other locations. The concept itself takes something ubiquitous and puts it to good use. In a nod to the web-centric age we now live in, the NotFound organization in Europe is doing much the same thing with so-called "404 pages". Those error pages are seen when you try to follow an outdated link on a web site. Rather that just a cryptic error page, some web masters produce custom 404 pages that aim to be a bit more user-friendly, sometimes even humorous. NotFound goes one better and uses the pages to portray missing child information.
