Host: How have children been able to get away from their abductors?
Nancy McBride: One of the most compelling parts of this study for us was learning how kids avoided abduction. This is the good news scenario. These are kids who got away, were not abducted. And what we found out is that 88% of these children either made a scene, created a stir, fought, resisted or walked or ran away. These were kids who took action to get away from their perpetrator. They didn't stand idly by. The actually got away. And in the other 12% of the cases, adult stepped forward to help the children.
Now, I would like to see is more adults, bystanders if you will, paying attention really seeing if they think the kid is in trouble and then helping that child out. So that's a percentage I would like to see rise. But kudos to these kids for knowing that the only way to avoid this abduction was to get out of it by any means available to them. If it's kicking, it's flailing, it's screaming, it's fighting, it's running, all of those things need to be done so that that child does not get in that vehicle, or so that that child is not abducted by that person. So I'd much rather know about attempted abduction where kids got away than be part of an abduction where unfortunately a child a taken.
So this is important information for parents or guardians to know and really spend time talking in their kids about, making sure their kids understand that that child needs to do whatever they can to avoid being abducted, avoid being put in that car.
