Check out this Analysis of Infant Abduction Trends by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
In September, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention released an analysis conducted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) Infant Abductions Program. Often, the most challenging task at hand upon the receipt of a missing child report is identifying the key factors surrounding the case. This crucial assessment of the initial facts will determine what actions the responding law enforcement agency will perform. Based on an analysis of 334 cases of infant abduction that occurred from 1964 through September 2021, this report helps narrow the focus by listing 10 characteristics of “typical” infant abductors, with four additional characteristics of an abductor who abducts from the home. The report also offers a graph demonstrating trends in infant abductions by year using diverse demographic data as well as an additional section on frequently asked questions.
