The Mentalist star has launched a short film competition, with entrants required to address the crimes of child abduction and sexual abuse.
The winning piece will be submitted to U.S. and international film festivals, and chiefs at America's National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) have applauded Kang for drawing attention to the issues.
Ernie Allen, President & CEO of NCMEC, says, ""Every child deserves a safe childhood. The child victimisation statistics are staggering. We are very enthusiastic to learn about the new project that Tim has launched which will help bring heightened awareness about the risks children face.""
