Child Custody Bonds

The National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrownaway Children (NISMART 2) reported that in 1999 an estimated 58,200 children were victims of nonfamily abduction, while an estimated 203,900 children were victims of family abduction. Many private, state and governmental agencies, and law enforcement departments work diligently to improve public awareness of the problem and to find ways to prevent abductions. The child custody bond was created for this purpose.
