- Every 40 seconds in the United States, a child becomes missing or is abducted. The vast majority of these cases are resolved within hours.
- Based on the identity of the perpetrator, there are three distinct types of kidnapping: kidnapping by a relative of the victim or “family kidnapping”, kidnapping by an acquaintance of the victim or “acquaintance kidnapping”, and kidnapping by a stranger to the victim or “stranger kidnapping”.
- Acquaintance kidnapping involves a comparatively high percentage of juvenile perpetrators, has the largest percentage of female and teenage victims, is more often associated with other crimes (especially sexual and physical assault), occurs at homes and residences, and has the highest percentage of injured victims.
- Stranger kidnapping victimizes more females than males, occurs primarily at outdoor locations, victimizes both teenagers and school-age children, and is associated with sexual assaults in the case of girl victims and mostly robberies in the case of boy victims.
- In 80 percent of abductions by strangers, the first contact between the child and the abductor occurs within a quarter mile of the child’s home.
- Most potential abductors grab their victims on the street or try to lure them into their vehicles.
- About 74 percent of the victims of non-family child abduction are girls.
- One in five children 10 to 17 years old are the recipient of unwanted sexual solicitations online.
