I am afraid the facts speak for themself.

It was claimed yesterday that the number of abductions by strangers in the UK is almost as high as abduction by a family member or friend.

I asked for recent examples but obviously there aren't any and a quick read through the Missing Persons Charity website indicates that most missing children are aged between 14 and 18.

In the UK recently there were several examples of abduction of young children by family or friends including Thila Rojas, Martin & Dominika Gajdar, April Jones, Shannon Matthews, Aamina Khan, Emanuel and Felipe Diaz.   There isn't a single example of stranger abduction of a young child.
De troothe has the annoying habit of coming to the surface just when you least expect it!!

Death by misadventure resulting from parental negligence.
Death by misadventure, yes. And there are many, usually kept private because tabloids aren't as greedy and insensitive as they're renowned to be.
But I don't agree "negligence" is the right explanation. I think the idea is more that misadventures only happen to others.
Physical punishments gained opprobrium because there were sometimes fatal consequences.

Even the archetypal abduction of the Lindbergh baby by a stranger wasn't an abduction, according to an historian.

I listed several examples on a previous page.

Here's another one:


Three held after kidnap and assault of girl, 3

· Badly injured victim rescued after police chase
· Child was snatched from home 80 miles away

   
    Rosie Cowan, crime correspondent
    The Guardian, Thursday 5 January 2006   

Detectives were last night questioning three men suspected of involvement in the kidnap and suspected rape of a three-year-old girl, rescued more than 80 miles away from home after a dramatic police chase.

The child was snatched from a house in the Rumney area of Cardiff around 10.30pm on Monday.

South Wales police arrested a 34-year-old man a short time later and were looking for a grey Ford Escort when, just after 1am, officers in Wiltshire spotted the car driving through a red light in Swindon. They chased the vehicle more than 14 miles along the M4 and the A4 until it crashed near Marlborough.

The girl was flown to hospital in Swindon, where she was treated for "significant injuries" before being discharged last night. It is believed she was hurt in the crash but she had sustained other injuries beforehand.

The 26-year-old driver was arrested at the scene and another man, aged 47, was arrested later in south Wales.

A police spokeswoman refused to specify where the 34-year-old or the 47-year-old were picked up. But she confirmed that forensic officers were examining a property in a block of flats in Newport, about half an hour's drive from Rumney.

Police appealed to the people of Rumney to help them find out what happened.

"This is an extremely rare event, which makes it all the more shocking," said Superintendent Josh Jones, deputy divisional commander for Cardiff. "Rumney is a closeknit community and we ask residents to work closely with us in providing any information they can. We will continue to provide a very visible police presence in the area."

Detective Superintendent Paul Kemp, who is leading the investigation, said: "The allegations are horrendous and I would urge anyone who has further information to contact us." An incident room has been set up at Penarth police station and callers are asked to phone 02920 222111 or speak anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Last night, detectives were given a further 36 hours to question the 26-year-old and 34-year-old - the two arrested earliest. Describing the car chase, Chief Inspector Charlie Dibble, of Wiltshire police, said: "Our attention was drawn to a grey Ford Escort travelling with no headlights from Blagrove near junction 16 of the M4 shortly after 1am. The vehicle passed through a red traffic light and did not stop. Officers followed the vehicle eastbound along the M4, then off at junction 15 heading south.

"Midway between Marlborough and Hungerford on the A4, the driver of the Escort lost control of the vehicle which then crashed. The male was arrested by traffic officers and the child was taken by the police helicopter to Great Western hospital in Swindon for medical examination. He has now been handed over to South Wales police, as the substantive offences took place there."

The three-year-old's mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said: "It's like a nightmare. You don't expect this to happen to you. The police had everyone out looking for her. They were brilliant."

The Cardiff abduction comes a week after a six-year-old girl was left naked in an alley in North Tyneside after being snatched from her bath and sexually assaulted.

The Tyneside incident is not thought to be connected to the Cardiff case.

It seems the Uk is becoming one of the most dangerous countries for children.

In 2012 in Portugal there were 53 cases (14 more than in 2011), 32 of which were "parental abductions" (usually small children under 12), 16 ran away from home (teens).

All of the 53 were found and returned to their original families.

I agree with you Luz and the McCanns have stated that they felt PDL was a very safe place. Safe enough to leave the children while they dined at the Tapas Bar 50 metres away. just very unlucky.
Both UK and Portuguese have stated the McCanns are not suspects.... This rules out parental involvement
The archiving report ruled out Woke and wandered
Abduction is therefore shown to be an almost certainty and explains why this is what SY believe happened IMO

Really?

But what about the other 5?  who were those kidnapped by?

And this year up to May 25-05-2013, 31 of which occurred this year!

Police investigating 64 missing children's cases

by TPN/ Lusa, in General News · 25-05-2013 14:57:00 ·

The Portuguese justice minister has revealed police were currently investigating the cases of 64 missing children, 31 of which occurred this year.

Minister Paula Teixeira da Cruz said at the end of a conference on “Missing Children and Sexual Exploitation”, that over 4,000 children were reported missing every year, though the numbers were dropping slowly.
 
Most children aged under nine who were reported missing were cases of being taken by their mother or father without the spouse's consent and most of these cases occurred in August, during the summer holidays.
 
Many disappearances in youngsters aged 15-18 were voluntary and often had to do with exam results, the minister said.
 
Teixeira da Cruz also said she wanted to do away with the myth there was a 24 to 48 hour interval to denounce a missing child, particularly in the case of parental involvement.
