SEARCH QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Are resources available to assist child abduction victims and their families?
Resources to assist child abduction victims and their families are available on the Child Abduction: Resources for Victims and Families section of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) site.

Also, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was established in 1984 to help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation, find missing children, and assist victims and their families. See the NCMEC site or call 800-THE-LOST (800-843-5678) for assistance.

Additionally, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) is a clearinghouse for missing persons and unidentified decedent records. NamUs is a free online system that can be searched by medical examiners, coroners, law enforcement officials and the general public to solve these cases. To enter a missing persons report into the NamUs database, visit the registration page.

Finally, for additional information about child abduction, visit the Kidnaping and Missing Children sections of our site.
