Child Abduction: Resources for Victims and Families

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has developed three publications to support child abduction victims and their families.


You're Not Alone:
The Journey From Abduction to Empowerment (May 2008) presents the stories of several child abduction survivors and how they have grown and developed since their traumatic experiences. Written by the survivors themselves, the publication provides information to help other child abduction survivors cope with their own experiences and begin their journeys towards a better future.

What About Me? Coping With the Abduction of a Brother or Sister (May 2007), written by siblings of children who have been abducted, provides information to help and support children of all ages when their brother or sister is kidnapped.

When Your Child Is Missing: A Family Survival Guide (May 2004) provides parents with the most current information on, and helpful insights into, what families should do when a child is missing. Written by parents of abducted children, this guide is available in both English and Spanish.
