The escalating number of missing teens in this country has become a major concern.

The most recent case is that of Jade Peters.

The father of the missing 12-year-old yesterday appealed to her abductor to release her.

Wayne Peters also called on the suspected abductor’s relatives to intervene.

Monday marked a month since Jade was last seen by her family at her home in Dow Village, California.

Head of the Victim and Witness Support Unit Margaret Sampson Browne revealed that in instances where children go missing it is a traumatic experience for the family.

She said that this was so especially in cases where the missing children did not leave voluntarily.

She stated that her organization provided critical primary and secondary support to the families of missing children.

She also revealed that situations where missing children leave voluntarily is of particular concern.

Browne also disclosed that in many instances there are numerous issues in the home that may lead a child to leave.

    Come on people, generally these girls are somewhere in our communities, homes, etc. Someone must have some idea where they are. Speak up and let us save them from themselves and others. Use the confidential telephone lines are give your information. They and their families are depending on us. Think for a moment if something like this was to happen to your child or relative or friend.
