Unit 2 Recording: The Crime of Family Abduction – Impact, Consequences and Considerations

A family abduction occurs when a child is taken, wrongfully retained, or concealed by a parent or other family member depriving another individual of their custody or visitation rights. In some circumstances, family abductions can be considered a crime under federal or state law. Decades of research have illustrated the serious and harmful effects that family abductions can have on child victims and their families. This webinar will highlight long-term psychological and emotional effects on the searching parent and abducted child, review NCMEC resources to help families search for their child, and careful, child-centered reunification efforts to bring families together.

Resources Mentioned During the Webinar:

Audience Comments:

  • “The general public sometimes does not understand how overwhelming an abduction can be and those actively involved in the search of a missing person in fact re-victimize the family. Great suggestion to keep the media at bay when a re-unification occurs.” — Dwight
  • “Every webinar you can host that speaks to the child’s perspective, or placing the child first, in a parental abduction, is invaluable!” — Edeanna
  • “Having the perspective from the adult next to the child’s was extremely helpful to see how they differ.” — Katie
