1268 child abduction offences were recorded by police in England and Wales in 2018/19. More than double those recorded in 2013/14 of 565 and the highest in a decade. The numbers are rising; with a 7% increase in recorded offences on the previous year and an analysis by Action Against Abduction suggests that three quarters of stranger abduction victims are girls and the average age of victims of attempted abductions is 11.
The numbers are staggering and with The Descent of Sanity we want to help change the narrative by raising awareness of the problem and navigating teachers, parents and caregivers to the 'Clever Never Goes' campaign by Action Against Abduction.
