The BairFind Foundation announced Saturday that eight missing children featured on BairFind signs throughout the Appalachian League have been safely located in the first month of the Appy League season.

BairFind doubled the number of missing children featured on signs throughout MiLB stadiums from four to eight for the 2017 season, and some missing children are featured on signs at mutliple ballparks based on geographic location. At least one missing child has been found from each BairFind sign in the Appalachian League stadiums. Below is the list of children who have been safely located from Appy League signs so far this season. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of other missing children featured on the signs is encouraged to call 1-800-THE-LOST.

The BairFind Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to locating missing children. BairFind began working with Minor League Baseball during the 2014 and 2015 seasons when it launched its Concourse Sign Project placing signs featuring local missing children on stadium concourses throughout MiLB. BairFind has since partnered with Minor League Baseball and has signs in 139 MiLB stadiums across the country.
