This report, available to members of the State Legislature, administrators, policy makers, law enforcement officials, judges, and other professionals who deal with child abduction, serves several purposes: First, it is a guidebook to increase understanding of the dynamics of stranger abductions and those carried out by a family member, close friend or loved one. Second, it identifies issues, existing problems or deficiencies that must be addressed in order to prevent the numerous abductions that occur annually, and as a means of follow-up, it suggests recommendations and courses of action. Last, it serves as a ready reference.
