NCMEC’s updated list of American children believed to be abducted to Japan

September 12, 2012

Children’s Rights Council of Japan recently detected an error in the online database of National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) that was resulting in only two of the posters of American children believed to be abducted to Japan to show up on the NCMEC website.  NCMEC has corrected the problem, and there are now 13 posters involving 17 American children showing up on their website.  Children’s Rights Council of Japan has reposted these cases including the posters with additional details for each case at the following link:

Below is a listing of publicized cases of American children believed to have been abducted to Japan in violation of U.S. laws.  The source for this information is the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).   As of September 11, 2012, there were 13 cases involving 17 American children on the NCMEC website.  This represents only a small fraction of the total cases involving abductions to Japan, as this is only for U.S. citizen children believed to have been taken to Japan.  Also, many left-behind parents do not report their cases to NCMEC, and not all left-behind parents have agreed to go public with their cases using the NCMEC Poster Campaign.  For more details on each case, click on the “View Poster” link.
