    It’s depressing that Jonny Gosch (the first child talked about here) went missing on the first day that he decided he didn’t need his father to supervise him, as well as the Etan Patz abduction being on the first day he went to the bus stop alone.

    • Jennifer Lyles says:

      There was someone watching. There’s actually a documentary on Netflix about Eric Patz and there was like this underground human trafficking network involved

    • Charlie says:

      That’s why I decided to always be with my parents even if it meant I was bullied at school

    • Mika Hare says:

      It is very sad. I remember the first time I went to get the school bus alone. (A few meters away to) & feeling very proud that I was a “big girl” now.

      It’s a shame someone took advantage of these kids first step into independence.

      I also remember it being later than most of my peers. Since my family was from a small town and had moved, they thought the city was full of danger.

    • Joebricks Gaming says:

      @RGkong Well yeah but at least patz had his parents permission ircc

    • RGkong says:

      Yeah and their parents were good too but they ignored their parents :(.

    I grew up in the 2000s and I remember going to Walmart with my mom and being immensely creeped out by the wall of photos of missing children, all in high contrast, usually black and white images. It’s honestly one of the first times I recall being disturbed. I never even imagined what it would be like to visit that feeling every morning over breakfast…

    When I was a kid, my mom would just scar me with stories about women going missing in her hometown in Mexico. Then she would make it worse by pointing at a random person in public and would say “if you don’t behave, they’re gonna take you like they did them.” And it would scare the hell out of me. Thanks Mom.

    Hi Wendigoon! I actually recently wrote a paper for my Ethics on Criminal Justice class about the AMBER Alert system. Supposedly it’s not as effective as it claims to be. It has many of the same problems that the milk carton program had. Many of the children on AMBER Alert system were just children stuck in the middle of a custody battle. There’s actually been claims that abductors have used AMBER Alerts about them to help evade police.

    • Languid- says:

      Amber alerts still terrify me mostly the noise but it just terrifies me but as a kid holy shit it scared me so much just the idea something like that could happen to me

    • z ÿ🚷#mf13 says:

      @karen sandoval a link to the paper

    • Iris Solebello says:

      i feel its still a bit better in that it informs but doesnt also cause nationwide panic and paranoia the way the milk cartons did

    • Spencer Stevens says:

      @Joebricks Gaming the same reason the people who told you “do you want to kill grandma” for not wearing a mask. Just reactionary idiots

    • Chele says:

      @Joebricks Gaming My question exactly.

      Silver alerts for seniors are better – they generally give the car and what road they might be on.

  6. HyperionFTW says:

    Hearing about missing kids always terrified me. Especially cases where there were no clues or evidence. They just disappeared and were never seen or heard from again.

    • HyperionFTW says:

      @Iris Solebello exactly. Especially before security cameras and ring doorbells became so common. A kid would walk just down the street and nobody would ever see or hear from them again. It’s horrific.

    • ★ autumn says:

      Agreed. It’s so scary to think that one minute you could be in one place and next you’ve seemingly vanished into thin air.

    • Iris Solebello says:

      missing people in general are just so unsettling to think about, but missing children are a special kind of sadness and disturbing

  7. 𝖘𝖆𝖑𝖊𝖒 says:

    My mom literally traumatized me due in part to this whole era. She once made me watch a documentary on stranger danger when I was about 5. She then put her finger to my head like a gun and asked me what I should do in that situation. I tried to answer, I think with running away, she just said, “bang, you’re dead. You can’t run from a gun.” And I started crying. I wasn’t even allowed to cross the street alone until I was about 13. Saying I was sheltered would be an understatement.

    • lyfeless cadaver says:

      @Reddzion you’re deep in a hole thats only gonna get deeper if you don’t do something. You’re 29 yrs old and letting your mom tell you what to do. Grow a pair, get a job and do something. If you don’t now you’ll never get out. Go live your life and tell her to bug off. Shes far too controlling and will let you wither in her possession until you die so she can have her baby all to herself. Seriously get up and do something for yourself, start and don’t look back. Gonna be scary but you need to or you’ll wake up one day with your mom standing over you wondering what went wrong and by then it’ll be too late.

    • Sajid TEG says:

      @Reddzion bro you’re a grown man move out

    • Branislav Hanakovic says:

      @Andy Lugo ya seriously can’t read sarcasm, can you?

    • D L says:

      @The Listener better dead than alive without autonomy

    • z ÿ🚷#mf13 says:

      @Greuts hence this whole video about a concept that seemed self explanatorily genius yet after the real execution, it wasnt

  8. Pioson says:

    Whenever I raised the idea of “Stranger Danger” to my mother, she would tell me that “No one would try to kidnap you” because I was built like a Brick Shithouse. Good times

  9. Haden Blake says:

    I was in elementary school in the early 2000s, and I distinctly remember having a stranger danger assembly. Ironically, the principal that gave that assembly actually ended up being charged with lewd acts with a minor. I can’t remember for sure if he was convicted, though.

    • Ceri-Ann says:

      I also had a stranger danger assembly but it wasn’t a regular one, there was girl in the year above me who had been followed home by a man and we had a whole assembly about how if we’re being followed, pretend you’re on the phone and to WALK to the closest safe place because if you run the adult is most likely quicker than you and will catch you. It was a very important assembly but I was like…9. It was terrifying
      Especially seeing as I grew up in a VERY small town, I knew of creepy people and heard the whole sweets in cars thing, but I had no clue it could happen near me or to my friends

    • Languid- says:

      @Sephikong Fr though 😭

    • ThatGirlJD says:

      @olliegoria Find another trusted adult and hope you don’t live in a small town with adults that will tell your parents.

    • Sephikong says:

      @olliegoria abusive household be like :

    • olliegoria says:

      “Remember, always tell a trusted adult, such as a parent or teacher”
      *What the fuck do I do if the “trusted adult” is the one not to be trusted*

  10. B Collins says:

    I read a book in school called “the face on the milk carton” that followed the premise of a girl who had been kidnapped as a toddler and found a picture of herself on a milk carton years later. I don’t remember the book being very good but I think a lot about the strange uncanny valley nature of the faces on the milk cartons. the thought of thousands upon thousands of kids going missing every day has our minds racing when in reality it’s probably just divorce disputes. great video!!!
