The New Way Millennial Parents Are Teaching Their Kids About ‘Stranger Danger’

For many parents in 2018, this kind of fear is still very real: 25 percent of parents worry that someone will hurt or attack their child, and 14 percent are afraid of kidnapping and abduction. However, the current reality is that kids are more likely to be harmed by people they know than by strangers. In 2016, just 1 percent of the missing child cases handled by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were classified as non-family abductions — by comparison, 6 percent of missing children were abducted by family members. Statistics also show that a staggering 90 percent of children who are sexually abused know their abuser. Approximately 30 percent are abused by a family member, and 60 percent by someone their family knows and trusts.

Blaze Bernstein’s parents using drones to help find missing UPenn student

The parents of a University of Pennsylvania student who mysteriously disappeared in California last week are using drones to help find him.

Blaze Bernstein, 19, who had been home in Southern California for winter break, met with a friend Jan. 2 and the two drove to Borrego Park in Foothill Ranch, witnesses told the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Bernstein apparently got out of the car about 11 p.m. and went into the park, the sheriff’s department said. That’s when he vanished and hasn’t been heard from since, the department added.

Parents learn coroner accidentally buried their missing daughter six years ago

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit police recently told the parents of a woman reported missing in 2009 that investigators actually found her body in 2010 and later buried her unidentified remains, blaming the mistake in part on investigative records that wrongly listed her ethnicity.

The parents of 28-year-old Crissita Cage-Toaster said they gave police a detailed description of their daughter — including of a large rose tattoo on her shoulder that included her parents’ nicknames — when they reported her missing in October 2009. Detroit police had discovered the woman’s abandoned car, with her purse, ID and cellphone inside, on a large island park east of downtown.

“From that day on, I’ve been searching for her,” said her mother, Rosita Cage-Toaster. “If they would have listened to me back in 2009, they could have then discovered my daughter.”

Local officials notified her parents this week of plans to exhume the body, which was buried

Heartbreaking Story Of Parents Who Thought Their Daughter Was Missing Only To Find Out She Died Eight Years Ago

It’s now being reported that Toaster was actually dead for years before her family was notified.

After not being satisfied with the original investigation, Toaster’s parents, Rosita and Johnny, contacted a national missing persons organization to help in the search for their daughter. They reported Crissita missing with local police three days after she was last seen and blanketed Detroit with missing person flyers.

It was after the organization did some digging that they found out Detroit police realized a woman matching Crissita’s description had actually been found dead years ago. Late last month, the couple was told their daughter’s body had been found just five months after she disappeared.

Apparently, Crissita was found dead in the Detroit River and, after failing to identify her for a year, city police buried her in a grave marked simply “Jane Doe 10-3047.” An autopsy was never carried out and a
