DEDICATED TO THE MISSING

Did you know?

Every 40 seconds a child is reported missing in the US!
2,000 are reported each day
200,000 are abducted by family members.
58,000 are abducted by non-family members
About 8% are stranger abductions.
800,000 younger than 18 are reported missing each year.

200,000 family abductions!

Think about that number 200,000! Rarely are children abducted by a parent trying to protect a child from an abusive parent, but more commonly they are abducted by an abusive parent for the sole purpose of hurting their ex or partner that is trying to leave. When you here abducted by a parent that doesn’t mean they are safe but more likely than not they are in mortal danger!

    Thank you so much for the post about Roxanne Paltauf. She is my sister and i miss her so much and still think about her all the time even after almost 3 years without her.
    This means a great deal to me to find this post and to have people thinking about her. Thank you again.

  2. Oh Rosalynn I am so sorry about your sister. I wish there was more I could do. I wish I could do something to help to protect other girls from ending up like Roxanne. I can’t imagine what you and your family are going through.

    I like so many did not know the magnitude of cases of missing persons not just here but worldwide.

    I don’t feel that I am doing justice here with this page however I do not want to change this sites direction because I feel very strongly that a lot of the missing persons cases could have been avoided if they would have been able to recognize the danger they were in or even the warning signs that something is not right about a future prospect.

    Not all missing persons are because of strangers often it’s because of someone they loved and thought loved them.

    Since I have started this site I have also been sent in a different direction and because of that and now knowing the need to help those like your sister and your family I am going to be starting a sister site to this one dedicated to the missing and their loved ones. I will post the address of the sister site here on this page when I publish it.

    If you have anything that you would like for me to post please feel free to contact me I will be more than happy to help you get the word out about your sister.

    My heart goes out to you and your family, and please know you are not alone.
