I can’t believe I am even reading about this challenge. It makes me so sad and rather sickened that kids feel the need to do this, for what I assume is attention.
The “48 Hour Missing Challenge” as explained by the Minnesota Sheriff’s Association:
Parents… be aware…. and kids, realize that if YOU REALLY DO GO MISSING…or a friend or a sibling REALLY GOES MISSING, by doing this or instigating it with others, you are harming yourself or those you love with this “cry wolf” stunt. Knock of the challenges like this… instead, challenge yourself and friends to do GOOD things. Help others. Get the most volunteer hours. Something that is GOOD.
