In Dongwan, Guangdong, Two Children Per Day “Disappear”

In Dongwan district, Guangdong Province, since the beginning of the summer vacation, cases involving missing children have risen sharply. The police in Dalang town, Dongwan City, announced that 49 children had been kidnapped or lost between July 1 and 23, 2012. On average, two children have "disappeared" on a daily basis. Most of those lost are the children of migrant workers from other provinces.

According to an NTDTV report, since Dongwan police ignore reports of missing children, traffickers openly take the children in Dongwan.
