Child Abduction Prevention Tips:

  • Never assume your child will not be abducted - always act as though it could happen.
  • Make certain your child knows his/her full name, your name, address and telephone number, including area code.
  • Explain to your child that a stranger is someone they do not know.
  • Explain to your child that if they are home alone, not to open the door for anyone except with your permission.
  • Know who your child's friends are, their addresses and phone numbers.
  • Teach your child that it is o.k. to "make a scene" if he/she senses danger.

DNA Profiling

The area of the DNA molecule used for identification testing is known as a non-coding region. This region gives absolutely no genetic information about your race, medical history, or pre-disposition to a disease.

DNA is the ultimate tool for personal identification. Every individual has a unique set of DNA markers, which are inherited from their parents. Therefore, your loved one can be easily identified by their specific DNA profile.

DNA Profiling is highly recommended by Law Enforcement Agencies nationwide as an identification method for all of your family. Acquiring a DNA Profile for your loved one is easy, painless, affordable, and need only be performed once, since his or her profile will not change over time.

We will process your sample, provide you with a copy of your DNA profile and store the information in our database for ten (10) years, so that it is available, should you need it. Again, THE ORIGINAL DNA SAMPLE IS DESTROYED, only the DNA Profile results are stored in our database.

THE FACTS ON MISSING CHILDREN

  • According to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, an estimated 787,500 children are reported missing each year.
  • Non-family members abducted 58,200 of these children.
  • 115 children were the victims of the most serious kind of kidnapping.
  • The national Amber Alert System was developed because 74% of the children who are victims of the most serious kidnapping loose their life in the first 3 hrs after being kidnapped.
  • A child's DNA profile does not change over time. This profile can be used in database searches for missing persons anywhere in the USA.
  • Only 1/5th of all households could provide enough information for authorities to begin a missing persons search.
Law Enforcement agencies are urging families to maintain a comprehensive identification kit for each member of their home. On September 11, 2001, DNA profiling would have identified thousands of loved ones in minutes.
