(Original Air Date: 12/01/08) Parents try their best to protect their kids and teach them about stranger danger, but what if your child is abducted … and the abductor is the other parent? Zanni and Christine are former sisters-in-law who say their ex-husbands, George and John Silah, vanished and took their children with them. The mothers haven't heard from their sons in months and have no idea where they are. Why do Zanni and Christine wish they trusted their instincts? Don’t miss the warning signs these moms say they recognized too late. The mothers accuse the fathers of shady business practices, and you won't believe what they say they discovered in their ex-husbands' home! The men are wanted for child abduction and there is a $25,000 reward for their capture. Then, David says he was happily married to Bruna and had a 4-year-old son whom he loved dearly. When he dropped them off at the airport in 2004, he never imagined that would be the last time he would see either of them for years. When Bruna arrived in her native Brazil, she called David and told him she wanted a divorce. David, who was devastated by his wife's actions, has fought tirelessly to regain custody of his son. Recently, this story took a tragic turn. Hear from David's attorney and get insight into his case. And, after losing custody of her 14-month-old, Cecilia went on the run and became a fugitive. She says fleeing was her only option, but now that she's been arrested and has served time, would she do it again? Join the discussion.

sadness through a family

The saddest part is that it doesn't matter in the end as it is always the children who loose.  if the child is at least 4 when a parent abducts them, they don't know any better and when the parent is caught they are very often forced to give up the parent who took them all together.  A parent that they love dearly.

This is what happen to a friend of mine.  The Mother of the child took off with the child when she was very young and when the Mother was caught, my friend against our advise, spent every last cent he had to keep her from seeing the child again and the child was not allowed to even visit her Mother.  The child never forgot her Mother who she loved dearly and when she turned 18 she told my friend (her Father), you will never see me again, I hate you and I hope you die.  She is now married and lives next door to her Mother and my friend is not allowed to even see his grandchildren, who he has never met.  I ask him now was the revenge worth all the heartache he is going through now and he clearly admits it was not.  Parents should be careful not to make the child a pawn in their revenge as it usually backfires on them
