Missing Kids’ Center Spreads to Texas

Two Texas businesswomen, armed with $1 million in private backing, have persuaded the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to open a new office in Austin.

The office is scheduled to open this summer in space donated by the local American Bank of Commerce, according to NCMEC. The center says the fundraising effort to create the office was led by Diane Allbaugh, an attorney and government affairs consultant, and Jan Bullock, a local philanthropist and widow of fabled Lt. Governor Bob Bullock.

Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., NCMEC has offices in Tustin, Calif.; Naples and Lake Park, Fla.; Kansas City, Kan.; Rochester and Utica, N.Y; and Columbia, S.C. Contact: (703) 837-6111,
