Police use the anniversary of Trudy Appleby's disappearance as a reminder to everyone to keep an eye on your kids.
With school back in session Moline police officials say it's a good idea for parents to discuss with kids their exact route to school, and tell them to stay on that route.
Police also remind parents to talk to your kids about what to do if a stranger approaches them or they feel unsafe for any reason. Go over what adults or places they can go to.
Police say it's even a good idea to discuss what to do if the unthinkable ever were to happen.
"If somebody approaches them and they make them feel uncomfortable or they try to abduct them make as much noise as possible, scream help, don't be afraid to fight back even," said Moline Police Sergeant Brian Johnson.
Police officials also tell us if your child does not return home when they're supposed to, call police right away, you don't have to wait 24 hours.
