Missing Children / Parental Abduction

This page will be dedicated to helping people find resources on the net in regards to missing children. I am just beginning it and would love feedback with information to add to it. I plan on beginning the information focussing on Parental Abductions. My children were held by my ex-husband after their Christmas visit and thanks to resources I found on the internet I was able to have them returned. How did I get my children returned? Especially with the jurisdiction unknown? The NCMEC helped me know what things I needed to do in general and in a legal sense to be able to have my children returned quickly. I accessed the following information and called them. Then communicated with them via email. The following information tells a little about their services.

Child Find Organizations

Child Find Canada:
Child CyberSEARCH Canada: Child CyberSEARCH Canada is an independent charitable organization.

The primary means by which NCMEC serves as an information 
clearinghouse and delivers technical assistance is through the
toll-free Hotline 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678). The Hotline, 
available throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico 
at that number; Belgium at 0800-7-3108, France at  0800-918401, 
the Netherlands at 0800-022-1769; and the United Kingdom at 
0-800-96-2587, operates every day of the year, 24-hours a day. 
Hotline operators currently handle approximately 670 telephone 
calls per weekday. Families and law enforcement agencies
call to report a missing child and seek assistance in their search. 
Citizens and families call to report the sighting of a missing
child and to request safety information to better protect their 
children. Professionals call seeking resources to assist them in
their missing and sexually exploited child cases. 

In addition, Hotline staff members pioneered a model program to 
assist families in the reunification process by arranging for
transportation and lodging for families who cannot afford these 
costs when picking up their missing child once found.
NCMEC works with American Airlines and the Greyhound bus system 
to arrange travel in such cases and Choice Hotels International 
to arrange for accommodations when a family is traveling to pick 
up their child. Our private-sector partners provide these services 
free of charge to the families in need of help, and the programs 
are coordinated exclusively through NCMEC. 

The Hotline has successfully established a system of networking 
calls to the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) in Chicago, Illinois. 
On average NCMEC transfers information from 15 such calls each day to 
NRS. This sharing of information ensures that both agencies talk with 
the caller about the runaway child to glean the facts needed to best 
assist him or her without either organization duplicating services or 
efforts to help the runaway child and that child's family. 

NCMEC, in conjunction with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, U.S. 
Customs Service, and U.S. Department of Justice, serves as the 
National  Child Pornography Tipline (1-800-843-5678). The Tipline 
handles calls from individuals reporting the sexual exploitation 
of children through the production and distribution of pornography. 

Since October 1984 NCMEC's Hotline has received 1,168,570 calls for 
service. Most of those calls are from parents or law enforcement 
officers who are seeking assistance with a missing or sexually 
exploited child case, citizens who wish to report the sighting of 
a missing child, parents who want prevention information on how to 
better safeguard their children, and parents who need reunification 
assistance once their child is found. NCMEC's dedicated Hotline 
Operators/Case Assistants work seven days a week going that 
"extra mile" to assist callers with the many services that they need.
