What to Do If Your Child Is Kidnapped

Kidnapping is a fear that we, as parents, keep hidden deep down inside.  I know for one, I cannot even fathom the idea of my boy being kidnapped.  However, with the way the world is today we cannot say “that won’t happen to my family.”  Have you ever sat down and figured out what you could do in the event your child was kidnapped?  Here are some things you can do if you find yourself in this situation.

It amazes me how many Amber Alerts we receive in just a months time.  It is crazy.

Teach Your Child What to Do in the Situation:

Teach them to scream-this isn’t my mommy or daddy

Hit and kick

Do as much as they can to draw attention to themselves

If they doing something like riding their bike tell them not to let go and hold on, its not easy to grab a kid and throw them into a vehicle when they are holding on to dear life to another object.

Make sure your child knows their phone number, the color and location of their home that way if they are found they know where to go.

If by some reason your child ends up in a car, teach them to jump out at a stop light or stop sign if possible.

Roll down the window and scream.

Grab the keys out of the ignition

What you should do in the situation:

Call the cops

Search your home, and I mean everywhere.

Search your vehicles

If you are in a business establishment notify the manager and security immediately

Then use your time answering the investigators questions.  Give them as much information that you possibly can.  You are going to be terrified and scared, but this is an important step in helping find your child.

Your the best thing you can do is provide as much information as you possibly can.

Get Your Kids ID’s

One of the most important things you can do is get your child kid printed.  It is a small identification card with your child’s information and a picture of them to give to law enforcement if a kidnapping has taken place.

Amarillo Crime Stoppers is great for obtaining Kid ID’s.

They will be available this Saturday from 9a-5p doing Kid Print ID’s at the Mommy and Me Expo.

I know the last time they were around I had a Kid Print ID made for my son.  It only takes a few minutes but it could be life saving.
