The recent release of three women who were abducted and held in captivity for 10 years in Cleveland, Ohio, is making headlines. Parents all over the country are worried about their children’s safety. As parents, we at Powell Law understand the mixed emotions of wanting our children to have a happy, carefree childhood vs. wanting to keep them safe. The thought that they could be abducted while taking a walk or riding their bikes after school is horrifying. Keeping calm, using common sense and hoping for the best, while preparing for the worst, is the best strategy.
According to kidshealth.org, approximately 2,100 missing children reports are filed each day in the United States. Many of those cases can be solved more easily if parents can provide essential information about their children, such as height, weight, eye color and a clear recent photo.
