We believe that no child should have to experience parental child abduction.

Children, in single parenting homes, that are abducted by one of their parents, struggle with a number of socio-economic and psychological issues. These children are often at high risk of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. The second parent and child are more likely to suffer from poverty, diminishing their chances to access quality education and health services. Research shows that children and adults who’ve suffered from child parental abduction also experience psychological issues and generational trauma as they’re robbed away from half of their identity — sometimes losing an entire culture, language, and the support of extended family from the second parent.

Children Affected Globally

Find My Parent is committed in raising awareness globally on the following issues: kidnapping, child abuse, parental child abduction, and human trafficking.

While the database is in English, Spanish, Danish and Japanese at this time, our team is working hard to expand our global reach by translating the website and database so it’s available in 20 of the most commonly spoken languages. We work hand-in-hand with our partners around the world advocating for effective policy changes to ensure that each and every missing child is reunited with their families as quickly as possible.

Our Founder's Story

Founder and CEO, Enrique Gutierrez knows the pain of children and parent being separated. Getting divorced in Japan resulted in Enrique having his beautiful daughter, Meline, legally ripped away from him. Due to the sole custody laws and zero enforcement of visitation rights, Enrique has not seen nor heard from his daughter or ex-wife for the past two years. Even worse, Meline has no way to look for Enrique. Enrique realized that his daughter should have the ability to try to reach out to him and this prompted Enrique to found Find My Parent.

Enrique’s story is not unique in Japan. With over 3 million cases in Japan alone. Children and parents are routinely separated at borders, such as the United States and Mexico, with no way for children and parents to find each other again. Further, illegal child abductions happen when one parent takes a child within our outside the country, intentionally separating them from the other parent.
