Here is the video.

This song came on the radio the other day, and I remembered that the entire video was about missing kids. Does anyone know if any of them were ever found?

When the video was still in regular rotation, I remember hearing a report on the radio that the video was being changed a bit to replace some kids that had just been found with other missing kids. So yeah, some kids were located as a result of the video.

Not to make light of the situation, but does anyone remember the Weird Al version of this video?

I think Milli Vanilli and David Lee Roth were among them.

I watched it and can tell you Byron Page, Wilda Benoit, Curtis Huntzinger, Christopher Kerze, Martha Dunn, and Thomas Gibson have not been found. Page and Huntzinger have probably met with foul play. Gibson was likely abducted, but there's not much evidence in his case. All the others are probably runaways, although they could have died on the streets.
