Miami County Child Abuse Council TO HOST “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT”

Traveling Exhibit Designed to Help Parents Recognize Potential Warning Signs


Anderson, Indiana – Looks can be deceiving. That’s the message behind a unique traveling exhibit created by Intersect, Inc. in collaboration with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. “Hidden in Plain Sight” is an interactive display designed to help parents of teens recognize unfamiliar hazards that are often in plain sight.  

By walking through a makeshift child's bedroom, parents learn to identify objects that could provide critical insights about risky behavior. Amidst the clutter of clothing scattered on the floor, school supplies on a desk and personal care products on a vanity are more than 100 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in risky, harmful or even illegal activity. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with the items on display.

 “Hidden in Plain Sight” will be on display at Second Saturday, located in downtown Peru at W. 5th St. and Broadway on Saturday, August 10th .  Doors open for browsing at 5-8 p.m..  The exhibit is open to adults only There is no charge for admittance.  Members of the media are invited to cover this presentation. Please RSVP to Intersect, Inc. at 765-683-0452.

Hidden in Plain Sight is a local educational resource made possible thanks to support from Intersect, Inc.;  Madison County Sheriff’s Department; Madison County Community Foundation; Bendle Lawn Equipment; Denny’s Abbey Carpet & Floor; Pendleton Police Department.
