ONEIDA - 500 cyclists have embarked on a journey to raise awareness for missing children.

The annual Ride for Missing Children started at State Police Troop D Headquarters in Oneida Friday morning, and ends at the New Hartford Rec Center this evening. 

There are several planned stops along the ride, including several local schools and agencies: Staley Elementary School in Rome, Hart's Hill Elementary in Whitesboro, General Herkimer Elementary School in Utica, Barringer Road Elementary School in Ilion, MVCC, and St. Luke's. There are many silent tributes throughout the day, as well as an opening and closing ceremony. 

The State DOT has issued a traffic alert for the day throughout various locations in Madison and Oneida Counties. The ride will be taking place from 7:50 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. State roads that are affected are NY-5, NY-365, NY-365A, NY-46, NY-31, NY-26, NY-69, NY-8, and NY-921B (Burrstone Road).
