Web shows nabbed kids

CHINA'S police authority published a Web notice yesterday urging parents and relatives to search for their abducted children on a Web page it has established.

The Ministry of Public Security launched a crackdown campaign on children abduction on April 9. As of October 12, it hadrescued 2,008 children involved in more than 1,700 trafficking cases.

But some rescued children still haven't found their parents.

To expedite the searches, the ministry set up the Web page on Tuesday at The page contains information on 60 snatched children, including their pictures, new names, approximate ages, time of abduction, present location and contacts.

Besides those 60, the ministry said it will continue releasing kidnapped children's information.

Officials also urged parents of missing children to get blood tests at their local public security bureau.

The ministry wants to compare their DNA with the rescued children.

In April, the ministry established a national DNA databank on abduction victims.

On Thursday, Wang Bangyin, a father from Guizhou Province, found his lost son after DNA results produced a match.

The toddler, renamed Hua Guokong, was the first of the 60 children to be reunited with his parents.
