I was blown away when I learned certain facts about missing children and child abductions. As a parent, this information alarmed me and prompted me to make sure I share this with others so that they aware and do not succumb to being a statistic.
Did you know….
- 800,000 children reported missing each year.
- One child every 40 seconds.
- Less than 10% of families have a sample of their child’s fingerprints.
- Children’s appearances change rapidly, and simple alterations in clothes or hair make identification difficult.
- 78% of missing children are abducted by a family member
These are some very startling facts. When I learned about this, I began to think about the “what if’s.” What if my daughter was abducted? How would I get her back? How would the authorities be properly notified and help me to get her back? What can I do to prevent this? I began researching and found that there are programs in place to help you when a situation as such arises. There was one particular program that I did like the most and it was mainly because I found that the program was supported by the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
You can take a look at my reviews section and under services I give a personal review on this particular program. I hope it helps you to keep your loved ones protected.
