Abstract: The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that as many as 200,000 children are abducted by family members every year. This publication, written from the perspective of the abducted child and the searching parent, offers insight into what it means to be abducted by a family member. It is divided into five sections: Introduction: Family Abduction is a Crime; Abduction: Being Missing – what happens to a child who is abducted; The Search: Looking for the Abducted Child – what happens to a parent whose child has been abducted and what the searching parent may be feeling; Recovery: Finding the Abducted Child – planning for recovery, managing the aftershocks, minimizing potential pitfalls when the child is returned; and Resources – a listing of additional publications, programs and resources that provide support for missing and abducted children and their families. Each section includes actual experiences from six primary contributors – four adults who were victims of family abduction as a child and two searching parents.
