Recover Missing Children in New York
We can help with the some of the increasingly expensive travel and accommodation costs that parents will encounter, helping with the cost of flights, hotel accommodations, and local travel expenses such as taxis.
How We Can Help
Our services are extremely valuable to left-behind parents across the country, when a family member of the child takes him or her away from their typical surroundings, which is the residence they are used to, without the consent of those with parental rights or responsibility towards the child.
To reduce the burden on the parent, our organization may be able to help cover some expenses that arise in the course of returning victims of abductions. We can finance the flights to the State or country where the child is being detained. We can also help with hotel expenses where the parent will stay during the ongoing litigation, and help to alleviate other costs that may arise in the course of the process to facilitate the safe return of kids abducted or kidnaped.
Responsible for providing assistance to law enforcement agencies in any cases involving children who have gone missing.
