Tony DiTucci serves as vice president of DGA Builders, headquartered in Pittsford, New York. Outside of his work supervising the creation of multifamily housing units, Tony DiTucci often contributes to charities including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children was created in 1984 to bring government programs and nonprofit efforts together to efficiently locate missing children. Today, the organization operates 22 nationwide programs to help find children when they go missing.

One of the most important services the Center provides is a 24-hour hotline, allowing the public to immediately report sightings of missing children. It also maintains a similar CyberTipline in partnership with the FBI, which allows people to anonymously report suspected child abuse or sexual exploitation. The public is encouraged to report any suspected misconduct, whether it occurred online or in person.

To report a missing child or a sighting of a missing child, call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
