Child Kidnapping Stats

The U.S. Dept of Justice estimates that 114,600 non-family abductions are attempted each year with approximately 3,200 to 4,600 being successful.

The risk of abduction by a stranger is relatively low for preschoolers, but increases through elementary school and peaks at age 15. Teen-age girls are considered most vulnerable.
24% of all kidnapping cases are by strangers; 49% are by family members, 27% are by acquaintances.
