Prevention and Recovery of Missing Children
In 2001, more than 22,000 children were reported missing in the state of New York with some 1,220 from Nassau County alone. By the end of the year, nearly half of the state's total number of missing children were either recovered or had returned home on their own accord. In Nassau, however, 91 cases of missing children filed last year have still not been solved.

Mayor Ann Corbett thanked the crowd of workers and management people for their work to date. In the topping-off tradition, two American flags and a small evergreen tree were placed on the structure's rooftop.
