Welcome to the website dedicated to the support of parents of missing
and abducted children! Support includes global resources, information,

globally oriented resource center on the planet!
Child abduction is a serious problem in today's world. Abduction by strangers
is not the only type of abduction. Parental abduction is a large and growing
form of child abduction. The website's goal is to provide a major resource of
information for parents who have been victimized by the child abductor. You
may be living a parents worst nightmare, but you are not alone. Information
empowers and breeds hope. Never give up.
