But while it may seem like we are in the midst of a kidnapping epidemic, the truth is much less scary. According to data from the U.S. Justice Department and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), kidnappings are on the decline. Each year, between 200 and 300 kids are taken in “stereotypical” kidnappings (i.e. grabbed from their homes or playgrounds and then murdered or held for ransom), and 50 to 150 are murdered. Officials expect this year’s total number to dip to near 100, hopefully dragging down the murder rate accordingly.

While about 700,000 missing children reports were filed in 2001, only a tiny percentage of those cases were non-family abductions. And here’s one piece of positive news: 94 percent of kidnapped children are returned to their parents. READ MORE HERE
