It has been estimated that more than 250,000 young people are abducted annually in the United States. In this compelling volume, readers learn about the types of abduction and kidnapping–both by family members and strangers–and how abductors operate. Some abductors follow victims home and force their way in when the victims have opened the door. Others use parking lots, shopping malls, or walkways–attacking when victims are distracted or alone. Readers learn techniques to protect themselves from being potential victims, including steps to take for Internet security. Various national and local safety measures, including Megan's Law, the AMBER Alert system, and the Child Abduction Response Teams system are presented as well.
