FAQ: Question & Answer
Where can I go for assistance if my child has been abducted and taken to another country?
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has created A Family Resource Guide on International Parental Kidnapping, which provides information about and guidance on what to do if an international parental kidnapping has occurred.
Also, the U.S. Department of State has an International Parental Child Abduction page to assist the parent of an abducted child. Assistance may also be obtained from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).
