MapQuest Links With Missing Children Effort

Denver-based MapQuest, the online mapping firm owned by AOL, has teamed up with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to help get out information about missing children and other information from the NCMEC, the firm said Monday. MapQuest said it has added a new widget on MapQuest Local, which will show pictures and other information about missing children in the geographic area that MapQuest Local's page is set to. The widget also allows users to search for missing children by name, and access other features from NCMEC.
