Nothing is more distressing than the disappearance of a child. Unfortunately, thousands of parents nationwide live daily with the painful knowledge that a child — a son or daughter — has been abducted or become lost. Some of these children are eventually returned to their homes. A few are found brutally murdered. In some cases, the parents never hear from them again.
