Although we do not want to be alarmists, nor do we want to create parents obsessed with this issue, the truth is that child abductions are not something that strange.

Even though most of the reports of disappearance of children is due to the fact that the child has run away from home or has been lost momentarily, we must be alert to the possible threats, and above all, educate children to distrust certain people and situations.

Bright Side shows us 12 illustrations where we can see what are the tricks that kidnappers use to take the children. With them we can identify a child abductor.

1- One of the tricks most used by kidnappers is ask the child for help, such as holding the bags for you while you open the car doors, or helping you look for the dog. This is not normal, since adults without bad intentions ask for help from other adults, never from children.

2- If you see a child cry or scream more than is reasonable while an adult tries to take him away and you suspect that this cannot be his father or mother, don't be ashamed to ask the child who is the adult who is accompanying him. If it is a kidnapper and the child does not dare to say so, he will know that you have seen him and that you can identify him, so he will think twice before proceeding further.

3- If you see someone who gives returns to a playground, or carefully observes the children playing, listening to other people's conversations, distrusts him. In order to scare him away, take a photograph of him and have him see it, that will dissuade him from continuing with his bad deed.

4- Gifts they are a strong magnet of attraction for children. Although we adults know that it is not frequent to give things to unknown children if there is no intention behind it, children tend to be very trusting and tend to agree to go where the person says they have the gift stored, especially if it is in a nearby car.

5- Social networks are usually a key site to find out about children and their families. Many sscavengers get informed of the parents' acquaintances or relatives, and dozens of details such as the place where they play or what their room is like, to later introduce themselves as friends of their parents and make the child trust them. The abductor can present an urgent excuse such as that his mother is admitted to the hospital and that he has asked her to pick him up to take him to see her.

If you witness that moment, better try to intercede for the child and hecall their parents on the phone to verify that it is true.

6- Don't trust other children either or supposed mothers who take other children, since many kidnappings are carried out by women or children, who act as bait.

7- Do not trust the cars accompanying children on the road or they ask for directions to get somewhere. It is not advisable for children to get too close to the car, since sometimes there are accomplices who introduce the child into the car while the driver misleads them.

An adult usually asks another adult for directions, never a child.

8- Also do not trust the supposed good intentions of those who want to take the child for a motorcycle ride. There are numerous cases where kidnappings have been plotted in this way.

9- A high percentage of kidnapping cases occur among teenagers. In these cases, the kidnappers pose as photographers or film producers and invite the children to take alleged photos or camera evidence, filling their heads with false hopes. If really someone look for new talentse done through an agency and in an official casting, never on the street.

10- Unfortunately many kidnappers disguise themselves as official bodies such as police officers, so that children, even adults, do not usually doubt their intentions. If you see a police officer trying to take a minor somewhere, ask for their identification number and name, as royal officers always contact parents before taking a minor into custody.

If he doesn't want to give you the information, take a picture of him.

11- Be attentive if you listen to a child call "sir or madam" to the person who accompanies him, since normally that indicates that he is a stranger.

12- Sometimes the outfit or clothing of the person accompanying the minor is totally at odds with the minor's clothing, that, together with another of the previous points, could show that it is a kidnapping.
