Few crimes are as frightening as kidnapping. The U.S. Department of Justice reports that more than 250,000 children are abducted each year, with the majority taken by a family member or someone the child knows. Although most abducted children are returned home or located alive, there are some shocking kidnappings each year that do not end well. The police and the public must act quickly when an abduction occurs. Child Abduction and Kidnapping looks at the history of abductions in the United States and explains the types of abductions, with a focus on landmark cases. The book details government, police, and public efforts to prevent and solve kidnappings and explains special programs such as the AMBER Alert system used to rapidly spread news of an abduction.
