PRESS RELEASE - MINNESOTA SHERIFF'S ASSOCIATION
Just like the Tide Pod and Bird Box challenges, another dangerous social media challenge has emerged.
It's called the "48 Hours Missing Challenge," and has teens daring each other to go missing for two days in hopes that their family/friends will make social media posts about their disappearance. The person with the most shares, wins.
Not only is this challenge dangerous for the participant, it could also tie up First Responders while there are real emergencies happening in their communities.
Please, talk to the teens and young adults in your life about not participating in these social media challenges.
