Safeguarding children against the threat of abduction or harm by predators is one of the greatest concerns facing parents and guardians today. A study by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that an average of over 2,000 children are reported missing each day. Of the children reported missing in a one-year period, over 58,000 were the victims of non-family abductions, and nearly a third of those victims were taken from a home or yard. Nearly 40% of the non-family abductions originated in a park, wooded area or other public area.1PreventAbduction.net was established to connect parents with the many resources available to assist with protecting children from abduction.
