It is undeniable that every parent would go to the ends of the earth for their child; however some in desperate times take desperate measures which could potentially do more harm than good. Circumstances like this are apparent where parents are not properly advised as to child custody laws, as with the recent case in Lebanon involving Sally Faulkner and the 60 Minutes crew.

The story of Cameron the boy abducted by his mother linked below came frightfully close to being a child abduction case that took extreme measures, but for his father’s change of mind. Cameron’s father considered seeking assistance from a child retrieval agent to snatch his Cameron off the streets, however decided against it stating ‘the main reason [being] it might be dangerous for Cameron.’

Stories like Cameron’s are common and stress the importance for parents to act rationally It is important to familiarise yourself with safer and more appropriate ways to recover your child.
