An unbeleivable True Story of a Father's Search for his 3 1/2 year old daughter that was kidnapped and murdered and the years of pain and anguish that his family went through and is still going through as he tries to put closure on his daughter's death, 25 years after her disappearance. You won't be able to put the book down and it will bring you to tears. A book every parent should read as children are still being kidnapped everyday. Mr. Bradbury has a resource page of what to do if your child is kidnapped that is valuable for every parent should this ever happen to them. Laura Ann Bradbury was the first kidnapped child to appear on the Milk Carton, Grocery Bag and at Bus Stops across the nation due to her parents perseverance of getting the word out there about her disappearance and getting the media involved to assist in the search. In 1984, the Amber Alert did not exist and this was the only means of alerting people of her disappearance.
