While the news may lead parents to believe that strangers are the biggest threat to their children in reality this is not the case. Most abducted children are taken by someone they know whether it is an estranged parent, another relative, or someone that has come into the lives of the family. Of course a surprising amount of abductions are those involving parents who are separated or divorced from the other parent and feel wronged or cheated when it comes to custody and time with the child. For parents who have primary custody of their child this is most often a thought in the back of their mind when visitation comes around but many times the courts do not give them the opportunity to not allow the other parents rights.
For custodial parents a child locator device may be the best solution if they fear that one day the child will not be returned after a visitation. The unit can use GPS technology to track the whereabouts of the child and alert them should they leave a safe zone with their other parent to an area they should not go.
Even in situations where the non-custodial parent does not have unsupervised visit’s a personal tracking device can be used to ensure that they do not pick up the child when they are not supposed to and try and take them away to start a new life elsewhere.
The Amber Alert GPS child locator cannot prevent a non-custodial abduction but if the child has one of these units they can be found and recovered quickly to return home to the place where the courts have decided they should be. Not on the run with a parent who feels they are doing the right thing though it in reality is not.
