ABC conducted a group interview of over a dozen U.S. parents whose children have been abducted to Japan and will be covering this on their “World News” programs on Tuesday, February 15 and Wednesday, Feburary 16, and also on ABC Nightline on February 15.

A related video, photos, and other information is available at the following link:

Below are the public posters for 9 cases obtained by Children’s Rights Council of Japan from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) of 10 U.S. children believed to have been abducted to Japan.

This list just represents the tip of the iceberg as the vast majority of the cases involving Japan are not being publicized in the NCMEC poster campaign, either because the left-behind parent has not reported their case to NCMEC, or they have reported the case but have not gone public with it.
