Abduction and Justice Product Description:

The True Story of a Mother’s Fight

In 1991, Sharon Young’s abusive ex-husband abducted her son and two daughters from Honolulu to Mexico, setting off a decades-long battle to find her children and bring their father to justice. Abduction and Justice is the riveting story of how Young dealt with every parent’s worst nightmare — struggling through years of despair, facing unexpected legal hurdles and lobbying for establishment of the Missing Child Center Hawaii, which has since helped rescue hundreds of children in the Islands.

“I wrote this book to help me reconnect with my abducted daughters who never returned,” Young explains, “but I realized I could also help parents protect their children by giving helpful information to families vulnerable to abduction, or who had actually experienced it. At the same time, I wanted to educate law enforcement and legal professionals that the idea that a child is safe with an abducting parent is a myth.”

Sharon Young is from a Hawaii kama‘aina family; in 1913 her grandfather John A. Young Sr. established Young Brothers, Ltd. On August 1, 1991, her ex-husband abducted her three children from their home in Honolulu and took them to Mexico. Sharon refused to let this tragedy define her and used her anger to fuel a way to better protect the children of Hawaii. She lobbied the state legislature for the creation of the Missing Child Center Hawaii, which subsequently opened in January 1995.
