CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Division of Police, RTA and FBI hosted an effort to raise awareness of missing persons cases in two neighborhoods.
At East Heath and E. 93rd Street families with young children lined up to receive kids' identification kits.
Officers took photos and fingerprints, and entered the children's information into a database. Parents received credit card-sized IDs to take home.
The IDs speed up the information gathering process when a child goes missing.
Police also reminded people in the fourth district to be on the look out for Ashley Leszyeski, last seen on May 6th on Heath and E. 93rd.
The 21-year-old is 5'7", 215 lbs, with auburn hair and green eyes. She is a mother of two children.
Meanwhile, on the west side, police set up a command post on Seymour Avenue, just a few homes down from where Ariel Castro kept Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight against their will for ten years.
The primary goal of the police presence on Seymour was to encourage people to stop by with tips on other missing persons cases.
The Guardian Angels also helped police distribute information pamphlets on missing and exploited children.
One family who stopped by hoping for information was the Kleckner family.
Christina Kleckner has been missing for 19 months.
The 25-year-old has some disabilities, and her parents desperately want information on her whereabouts.
This Saturday, May 25, is National Missing Children Day.
The Cleveland Police will be meeting at West Town Shopping Center, on W. 110th and Lorain, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Children's ID kits will be available.
