 Our experienced agents are sensitive to the handling of the advanced intelligence gathering programs. Our services include the use of innovative, proven techniques and legal and ethical methods designed to identify the perpetrator(s) and their whereabouts in relation to the safe recovery of the victim. ARC’s child recovery process involves detailed background investigation of both the custodial and non-custodial guardians and affiliates requesting support.

We are able to come along side custodial guardians and affiliates and provide them with guidance and tools to navigate the political and judicial fault lines that so often result in excessive timelines, wasted energy and finances, and impractical and confusing solutions that ultimately catapult the missing and exploited child into even more danger.

ARC conducts all its investigation through means that are consistent with applicable state and federal law.During our child recovery process, we maintain effective communication and coordination with various agencies including:

  • Law Enforcement agencies whose jurisdiction allows them to arrest the perpetrators.
  • Social service agencies to ensure that the abducted child is reunited to the lawful guardians or custodians.

We also believe that the team approach is essential for any successful recovery process. We work closely with specialists such as psychologists, sociologists etc., who are experienced in the sensitive recovery of kidnapped and exploited children. In addition, our extensive experiences in protecting executives of Fortune 100 companies also provides the basis for our protective strategies in providing a seamless recovery of children from difficult situations.

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.
