dc.description Reports on the results of a national survey of 10,544 households containing 20,505 children as part of the National Incidence Study of Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrown-away Children. On the basis of the survey, and using a broad, legal definition of abduction that includes many short-term violations of custody arrangements, the authors estimated that, in 1988, approximately 354,100 children were abducted by a family member. Using a more restrictive definition that is closer to the popular stereotype (i.e., a situation where there is concealment, transportation to another state, or an intent to keep the child or to permanently alter custodial privileges) they estimated that there were 163,200 family-abducted children.
