Family law attorney Rich Harris, President of The Harris Law Firm says that "Although the tragedy associated with parental child abductions in Colorado is not common, the statistics still indicate that parents need to know how to protect themselves and their children. Prevention is worth a pound of cure in these cases, and when parents and children learn together how kidnappings occur, they can reduce the chances of it happening to them."
