If you are a searching parent or family member or are looking for tools to help your family deal with the impact of child abduction, this section of the website has information that may be helpful.

There are many resources available for family members while they are searching for a child or working through the aftermath after the child is reunified with their family. There are too many families who deal with the crisis of abduction and feel they have no where to go to get help or get involved. Below are resources that we hope will assist a family who is dealing with an abduction case or a parent or family member who is hoping to prevent it.

If you have other questions after looking through these resources, please contact your local district attorney or Team HOPE at 1-866-305-HOPE (4673)

Prevention Resources

  • It is important for parents to understand that children are at risk of abduction regardless of who their family is or where they live. 99% of all child abductions are perpetrated by a parent, family member, or another adult that the child knows and trusts. Whether a child is taken by a parent or another family member, research shows that it causes significant trauma to the abducted child, and it is a crime.
