How many children have been abducted by family members?
Statistics on child abductions committed by family members are available in the
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP)
Children Abducted by Family Members: National Estimates and Characteristics
. Another OJJDP report on this subject,
Crime of Family Abduction: A Child's and Parent's Perspective
, was developed to provide the searching family, law enforcement, and mental health professionals with strategies to build a comprehensive, child-centered approach to recovery and healing.
See statistics on the number of child abductions in the United States from OJJDP's publication series
National Incidence Studies on Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrownaway Children (NISMART)
and the annual
Missing Person and Unidentified Person Statistics
, which is published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through its National Crime Information Center.
Also see the
Juvenile Justice: Missing Children
sections of the NCJRS website and the
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
website for additional information.
