Recovering a Missing Child in Maine

The Committee for Missing Children has a long track record when it comes to working alongside parents with missing children in Maine. Parental kidnapping in Maine is a major concern. Many parents are forced to endure the financial strain that comes with having a child taken from them by the other parent. Travel fees, lawyer fees, and other incidentals have a way of adding up quickly. Our primary objective is to reunite parents with their missing children while allowing them to steer clear of these cumbersome expenses. The process can be lengthy and that’s why The Committee will work around the clock to ensure a safe and happy return. 

Casting a Wide Net

In order to locate missing children in Maine, a wide range of resources are needed. Parents who have been left behind can depend on The Committee to help them make sense of it all, and can also receive emotional support from an organization that understands what they are going through. During moments like these, it can be hard to find the proper guidance. Thanks to these tireless efforts, there is no shortage of success stories to be shared.

Tireless Advocacy for Child Protection

As a parental advocacy group, we hope to assist all of the left-behind parents of missing children in Maine until they have been reunited with their loved ones. They will receive the assistance that they need, and their rights will remain protected each and every step of the way.

Because many of the laws surrounding child kidnapping and parental disputes are still quite obscure or general, we also maintain continual advocacy for the rights of left-behind parents and children, in the hopes of enacting legislation that will make it easier for left-behind parents to be reunited with their children in the future.

The Maine State Police Major Crimes Units are typically contacted in these instances. They are able to offer their assistance to other law enforcement agencies that are in the process of investigating parental kidnapping in Maine. When missing persons reports are issued under suspicious circumstances, they need to be fully investigated.

We aim to help parents with their financial burdens during these investigations, as travel fees, lawyer fees, and room and board can all add up quickly.

Anyone who has any helpful information to provide tips, so that they can be forwarded to the Major Crimes Unit in that region.

Custodial & Parental Abduction Legal Codes

A parent is guilty of kidnapping if they have done any of the following:

The parent knowingly restrains the child with intent to: hold the child for ransom or reward, use them as a shield or hostage or inflict bodily injury upon the child. The parent cannot knowingly restrain the child or potentially expose them to risk of serious bodily injury. Holding the child in a place where they are not likely to be found also constitutes a kidnapping or abduction. The removal of a child from the other parent’s residence or place of business or from a school is also covered under these legal codes. The Committee is here to help any parent who is experiencing any of these types of circumstances.
