Parental Pleas for the Safe Return of Missing Children

Investigators arrested Clark Rockefeller, a father who allegedly kidnapped his seven-year-old daughter, Reigh Boss, in Boston last Sunday during their supervised visitation. Prior to the girl's safe return, her mother, Sandra Boss, issued a video plea to her ex-husband to return their daughter. While that footage didn't seem to affect the outcome of the situation, it got me thinking about the horrendous situation that parents of missing children find themselves in. Aside from the obvious anguish of wondering where their offspring is, moms and dads often release seemingly composed statements to the abductor. As a parent, I'd do anything for my child, but I would find it difficult to hold back my emotions in trying to get them back — especially if I were directing those comments toward a former spouse. Would you?
