why don't you publish pictures so the general public can also keep an eye out. Can't find a missing child if we don't know what he looks like

Does God create a brand new soul for every child born; or are we reincarnations of people of the past? If the latter, have the surplus population brand new souls, or are we reincarnating more frequently? Or is it just the case that we have no individual souls, of if we have, it is merely physical evolution. I would like to know what people think. No frivolity, please. S

What is a 3 year old doing playing outside?! Parents need to be more responsible, were it not for the kidnapping the child could have been hit by a car and so on, he is far too young to be outside unsupervised especially in the street, nevermind your yard.
