Child abductions

Key child protection statistics


These statistics were compiled by the NSPCC Child Protection Awareness and Diversity Department in December 2007.

While we do have figures on 'child abductions' or 'killings at the hands of strangers', we don't have figures on the numbers of children who are abducted and killed by a stranger. This is because if a child is abducted and then murdered, only one offence of homicide is recorded by the police. However, the number of children abducted and murdered by strangers is almost certainly tiny. An NSPCC internal survey of newspaper reports of children who were killed or died in suspicious circumstances in the 12 months following Sarah Payne's killing (August 2000 - July 2001) found that of 128 reported cases, not one was of a child abducted and killed by a stranger.

In 2002/2003 846 child abduction offences were recorded by the police in England and Wales1. This was a 45% increase on the previous year, as a result of changes in recording.
Newiss, G. and Fairbrother. L. (2004) Child abduction: understanding police recorded crime statistics (PDF). Findings 225. London: Home Office. Research, Development and Statistics Directorate.

Just over half of all police recorded child abductions in 2002/2003 in England and Wales were attempted abductions (i.e. the abduction was not 'successfully' completed).
Newiss, G. and Fairbrother. L. (2004) Child abduction: understanding police recorded crime statistics (PDF). Findings 225. London: Home Office. Research, Development and Statistics Directorate.

56% of all police recorded child abductions in 2002/2003 in England and Wales involved an offender not known to the child. 23% of child abductions involved a parent. The remainder involved other people known to the child.
Newiss, G. and Fairbrother. L. (2004) Child abduction: understanding police recorded crime statistics (PDF). Findings 225. London: Home Office. Research, Development and Statistics Directorate.

There were 59 cases in 2002/2003 in England and Wales involving a stranger 'successfully' abducting a child or children, resulting in 68 victims (9% of all recorded child abductions). There were 361 cases of 'attempted' child abductions by strangers, resulting in 377 victims (47% of all recorded child abductions).

In 2002/2003 in England and Wales at least 6% of child abductions were sexually motivated. It is estimated that many of the attempted child abductions by strangers where the motive was not known were also sexually motivated abductions.

Footnote

1. The offence of child abduction is part of the 'violence against the person' category of police recorded crime. It is only a small proportion of the total offences in this category (just 0.1% in 2002/03).
