March 5, 2010— -- Today, "Good Morning America" showed clips of a home video featuring Jaycee Dugard -- the first glimpse of the abduction survivor since her rescue last summer from the backyard of Phillip Garrido, where she was allegedly held captive for nearly two decades.

"Hi, I'm Jaycee. I want to thank you for your support, and I'm doing well," Dugard says.

While Dugard's homecoming was a joyous occasion for her family, thousands of others across the U.S. are waiting their turn. Every year, nearly 800,000 children are reported missing, or around 2,000 each day, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Below are pictures of some of those children. If you recognize any of them, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children asks that you call their hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST.
