Top 10 Kidnappings That Shocked the U.S.

Top 10 Kidnappings That Shocked the U.S. While many child abductions in the United States are committed by a family member, some are inexplicable and terrifying. The country comes together in fear and grief during these times to try to understand, and to find the victim. While all kidnappings are devastating, some are not entirely in vain: Adam Walsh's disappearance and death prompted the invention of the Code Adam missing child safety program and the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act. Amber Hagerman's kidnapping inspired the Amber Alert, and the day of Etan Patz' disappearance is commemorated as National Missing Children's Day. In this video, WatchMojo.com counts down 10 of the most shocking kidnappings to ever hold America hostage.
