The Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of former and active Intelligence, Military, and Law Enforcement personnel, dedicated to the recovery of missing and exploited American children in foreign and domestic locations.

The management team of the association comes from the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, supervisory law enforcement, Fortune 100 corporate security, government protective services and military special forces.

With offices in Los Angeles and a global network of experienced affiliates, ARC is well placed to be your trusted strategic partner. To date, we have a 100% success rate with a multitude of recoveries, which translates to the fact that no harm ever came to a child reunited with their custodial guardians.


ARC is an under-the-radar operation contracted through various sources for intelligence and information on missing and exploited and trafficked children.


Currently with a 100% rescue rate, it is our goal to be the most effective child recovery organization in the United States.


When asked by citizens why we do what we do, our reply is simple. “If we do not…who will?” Our primary focus is on one thing and one thing only, the recovery of abducted children. We do not come home without the child.

Think about it…we were all children once. If you were abducted or lost, wouldn’t you want the best prospect of knowing that you would soon be reunited with your family?

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. We hold ourselves to the highest moral consciousness, knowing that children are the future. If we do not protect them, then we do nothing more than sow the seeds of destruction within our own nation, as well as others. In a world of changing and declining moral values, one trait distinguishes us from the other more clearly than race, gender, creed or color…honor. Today, more than at any other time in history, the destiny of the world rests on the high hopes we garner from the honorable men and women among us. Not completely definable and often intangible, honor feeds the spirit and soul of those who take it as their way of life. Honor must be freely embraced and treasured, not for the material benefits, which it might bring, but for the knowledge that one has obeyed the moral law.

Some people say the best day of their life was their wedding day or the birth of their children. Those were great days for me as well, but if I was to choose the absolute best day of my life it would have to be December 4, 2003. Thursday, December 4, 2003 was the day I was reunited with my abducted daughter. My name is Mandalyn Hanson and this is my story.
