In the time it takes you to read this, at least one U.S. citizen has likely been abducted. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that more than 260,000 children per year are taken against their will within the U.S., and this number is growing annually. This statistic does not include unreported cases, adult abductions or U.S. citizens abducted in foreign countries, which could actually double the total number of annual abduction cases.
Many kidnap victims are tortured, sexually abused or conscripted into the secretive world of the international sex trade. While its easy to write off the dangers and assume such horrible things can only happen to others, unfortunately these crimes are all too common and victims come from every segment of our society .
