(prHWY.com) May 1, 2012 - Missing Children Successfully Found and Rescued by, PA -- The team from the American Association for Lost Children publicly shares the charity's commitment to physically find and rescue missing children at no cost to the parents. This Christian non-profit organization was founded in 1987 and has rescued more than 135 missing children from cities within the United States and countries like Germany, Lebanon, Korea and Mexico.
There are many cases from around the world involving innocent children being abducted from their homes. These children were made to believe that their parents had died or simply do not want them anymore. Most often, their names were changed to hide their identities and some of the missing children found were sexually abused at a young age.
The American Association for Lost Children (AAFLC) operates through charity funding and works with a team of volunteers who assist in surveillance or hands-on investigation to help solve cases of missing children. Numerous hours and even months are spent to locate the whereabouts of the victims including travelling in and out of the country to produce some results.
One of the missing children which were recently located is five year old Thaddeus Antoine Evans of Mississippi. Thaddeus was abducted and held for twenty-one months but was ultimately rescued in Chicago by the AAFLC team on April 21st. Through months of shadowing in multiple locations, the organization's recovery team was able to track the abductors to an abandoned housing area in Chicago.
The mother of the missing child and a few relatives immediately drove to Chicago to meet with the AAFLC team which was headed by its founder Mark Miller and volunteers, Rita Hile from Latrobe and Amy Latimar from Georgia. With the assistance of the Chicago police department Thaddeus was finally reunited with his mother.
Another successful recovery by AAFLC is the case is of a six year old child who was kidnapped from Salinas from California. The child was abducted and held captive for sixteen months by her Bolivian mother who took her to Mexico. The father John Salinas, who was granted custodial rights earlier by the court approached AAFLC to ask for help. His hunch that the child was somewhere in Mexico was proven right.
The team had to process documents in order to enter Mexico and one of AAFLC's volunteers posed as priest in order to avoid a confrontation with drug lords and gangs on their way out of the country. The mother was arrested by Van Nuys police officers and the child happily reunited with her father in California.
A missing child flyer which was found by Mark R. Miller in 1987 paved the way for what is now known as the American Association for Lost Children. Through his dedication in recovering missing children, many individuals and businesses became loyal supporters .AAFLC is always in need of Volunteers of all ages everywhere.
The American Association for Lost Children, Inc. (AAFLC) is a Christian organization founded in 1987 that physically searches for and rescues missing children at no cost to the parents. AAFLC spends hours, days, weeks, and months conducting "hands-on" investigations while traveling in and outside the country performing surveillance and undercover work searching for missing children.
