empowering individuals

Around the world through AI technology as a self service tool
to find and reconnect with their families.

A recent press conference by Japan on this issue.

FMP has created a simple yet effective way for individuals to safely locate and reunite with their families.

Step 1

Individuals input information of a individual and/or of their family members on our secure and confidential website.

Step 2

Upon submission, our website then searches all entries for a match.

Step 3

Once a potential link to his/her family is found, a notification is made, our platform gives an output — ultimately paving the way for the families to reunite.

We believe that no child should have to experience parental child abduction.

Children who grow up in single-parent homes or who are abducted by one of their parents struggle with a number of socio-economic and psychological issues. They are at-risk for emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. They are more likely to suffer from poverty, limiting their access to quality education and health services. Research shows that children and adults who’ve suffered from child parental abduction also experience psychological issues and generational trauma as they’re robbed of half of their identity — sometimes losing an entire culture, language, and the support of extended family.

While the database is in English, Spanish, Danish and Japanese currently, our team is working hard to expand our global reach by translating the website and database so it’s available in 20 of the most commonly spoken languages. We work hand-in-hand with our partners around the world advocating for effective policy changes to ensure that each and every missing child is reunited with their families as quickly as possible.

Our Founder's Story

Founder and CEO, Enrique Gutierrez knows the pain of children and parents being separated. Getting divorced in Japan resulted in Enrique having his beautiful daughter, Meline, kidnapped from him. Due to the sole custody laws and zero enforcement of visitation rights, Enrique has not seen nor heard from his daughter or ex-wife for the past two years. Even worse, Meline has no way to look for Enrique. Enrique realized that his daughter should have the ability to try to reach out to him and this prompted Enrique to found Find My Parent.

Enrique’s story is not unique in Japan - there are over 3 million similar cases in Japan alone. Children and parents are routinely separated at borders, such as that of the United States and Mexico, with no way for children and parents to find each other again. Incidences of parental child abduction have grown as the world becomes more connected and international marriages become more common. A large number of children are also abducted by a parent domestically - many of these cases are never even reported.

Child Abduction

Family Abduction Prevention and Response

Many child abductions in the United States are committed by a parent or other family member. An estimated 203,900 children were victims of family abduction in the United States in 1999, according to the second National Incidence Studies: Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrown away Children(NISMART-2), a study published by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention(OJJDP), U.S. Department of Justice, in 2002.1 Children who are victims of family abduction are uprooted from their homes and deprived of their other parent.Often they are told the other parent no longer loves them or is dead. Too often abducted children live a life of deception, sometimes under a false name, moving frequently and lacking the stability needed for healthy, emotional development.The term parental kidnapping describes the wrongful removal or retention of a child by a parent. Because child kidnappings are frequently committed by other family members, the term family abduction more accurately describes such action. Both terms are used interchangeably in this book. Both have civil and criminal meanings.When a parental kidnapping occurs the government may pursue criminal process against the abductor if a criminal law has been violated. Law enforcement and prosecutors are part of the criminal-justice system. The left-behind parent may pursue civil remedies to prevent an abduction or recover a wrong-fully removed or wrongfully retained child. The left-behind parent’s lawyer and the family court are part of the civil-justice system. It is important to understand both criminal and civil remedies can be pursued when an abduction occurs. The decision to pursue civil remedies is up to the parent, whereas the prosecutor ultimately has discretion whether to pursue criminal process.This guide covers civil and criminal remedies in parental kidnapping cases.It navigates parents and attorneys through the criminal- and civil-justice systems’ responses to parental kidnapping. It describes actions parents can take and laws that may be helpful when their children are the victims of family abduction. It also explains how to prevent abductions.Parents should take this book with them when they meet with their attorneys, law enforcement, prosecutors, and family-court personnel, many of whom may be handling a family-abduction case for the first time.

Parental Abduction

Gender Differences in the Use of Parental Alienating Behaviors

Past research indicates females prefer the use of indirect over direct forms of aggression, whereas the opposite pattern has been found for males. We investigated a specific form of aggression: parental alienating behaviors. Parents who alienate their children from another parent utilize both direct and indirect forms of aggression. We examined whether there are gender differences in the use of these behaviors.
