This issue of AMBER Advocate presents the perspective of parents of missing children who contributed to the Fifth Edition of When Your Child Is Missing: A Family Survival Guide as well as an interview with Chitimacha Tribal Police Chief Jada Breaux and a discussion of a complex case that was resolved quickly through collaboration.
This special double issue of AMBER Advocate offers an in-depth look at the issues most important to the eight parents of missing children who helped create the new multimedia Fifth Edition of When Your Child Is Missing: A Family Survival Guide. It not only highlights their advice for other parents navigating chaos, but also what law enforcement can learn from their experiences. This issue also highlights the new memoir of one of the Guide’s parent-authors, Patty Wetterling (Dear Jacob: A Mother’s Journey of Hope). Patty is a longtime advocate for missing children and who has advised countless law enforcement officers on how to best work with families of missing children. The issue also includes an interview with Chitimacha Tribal Police Chief Jada Breaux of Louisiana and examines a complex case, spanning from New York to Mexico, that was resolved by quick and effective collaboration.
