We're only a few weeks into November, and when I saw just how many kids have been missing in Illinois since October 1, I was shocked.

Shocked, saddened, and scared wondering if these kids will ever be found.

However, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children does their very best to keep a list of all missing kids.

Here are the 15 children missing since October 1:

Christopher Owens, 17, missing from Belleville, Illinois.
