Each year many children worldwide go missing. For example, in the United States the U.S. Department of Justice reports that:



· 797,500 children (younger than 18) were reported missing in a one-year period of time studied resulting in an average of 2,185 children being reported missing each day.


· 203,900 children were the victims of family abductions.


· 58,200 children were the victims of non-family abductions.


· 115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping. (These crimes involve someone the child does not know or someone of slight acquaintance, who holds the child overnight, transports the child 50 miles or more, kills the child, demands ransom, or intends to keep the child permanently.)
