Still Missingby Theresa Tollini
When children are abducted by non-family members
Almost every day in this country a child is abducted by a non-family member. Often the abductor is a child molester. Still Missing approaches this subject via the parents of four children who were taken from their families. Through their stories, we learn not only about their grief, but also about how police and communities should respond to reports of missing children, how to recognize and report a missing child, and maybe most importantly, how these crimes may be prevented through the early intervention and treatment of juvenile sex offenders.
STILL MISSING is a call to action to see the risk signs and intervene early in the lives of potential sexual predators. Anyone who cares about children should see this film and heed it's call

STILL MISSING is not a "Hard Copy" roughshod treatment of a highly emotional issue. On the contrary, it's an informative, compassionate, and ultimately activist approach. Highly recommended.
As a parent and a child abuse prevention professional for the past 21 years, I recommend Still Missing to anyone who comes in contact with children in their daily lives.

STILL MISSING is a well researched, well produced, and valuable piece. We will include STILL MISSING in our police detectives training project.
