In this final installment of our special Newsline report on handling missing children cases, we share information designed for law enforcement use ONLY.
In an extensive guide published by the FBI titled, "Child Abduction Response Plan: An Investigative Guide," officers and their agencies are given detailed instructions on how to conduct a missing child investigation, from receipt of the initial call that a child is missing to effectively coordinating and conducting searches, strategies for conducting interviews with witnesses and suspects, gathering thorough information about the missing child, and handling media attention generated by the case.
