Almost every American can recall the tragic history of young Adam Walsh, who was abducted and murdered in 1981. This issue of Juvenile Justice contains an interview with John Walsh, Adam's father, that elicits John's insights on key missing children issues. Ernest Allen, head of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, also contributes to the issue with an article, "Keeping Children Safe: Rhetoric and Reality," that examines the effectiveness and accuracy of traditional child safety messages.
