HOW CAN THE POLICE BECOME INVOLVED?

Several options exist when a child is missing, but believed to still be in the country. A parent can report the child as missing to the police, and express concern about possible abduction. In Israel, cases of alleged abduction or kidnapping are treated as missing persons cases initially, but all borders are also checked and warned about a possible abduction. If checks show that the abductor and/or the child has left Israel, Interpol (the International Criminal Police Organisation) will be notified.

The police in Israel will obtain helpful supporting information and assistance in tracing missing children from government departments and non-governmental agencies, such as schools, nurseries, health institutions and social workers.
