FBI trains Kansas agencies in missing, abducted child cases

The FBI is helping to make sure law enforcement agencies across the state know how to handle cases of missing and abducted children.


While this volunteer group searches for Lucas, the FBI is training 35 law enforcement agencies from across Kansas.

"This started a couple years ago, it is now expanding across the country, I will tell you this region, Kansas in general is ahead of the curve," said Special Agent Darrin Jones with the FBI Kansas City office.

They are using the same training the FBI's team uses when responding to child abductions.


The training is not just in the classroom, as they'll be holding an exercise in El Dorado on Thursday.
