Was The Missing Kids Milk Carton Campaign of The 80s Effective?

The missing kids milk carton campaign started in Iowa

The grainy images of boys and girls sat beside Americans during breakfast time for much of the 1980s.

Before Facebook, Amber Alerts and text messages, pictures on milk cartons were a way to distribute information about missing kids.

It made sense at the time. Most Americans drank milk and the cartons had a frequent turn-around from grocery store to fridge.

It was also a grassroots campaign with deep Iowa ties.

Among the first cartons to be distributed in the grocery stores were from Anderson Erickson; they featured the black and white images of Johnny Gosch and Eugene Martin — two Des Moines Register newspaper carriers.

From there, the missing kids milk carton campaign grew. Dairies across the nation participated, and missing kids across the nation became a part of Americans’ routines.
