There is nothing more horrifying for a mother than losing her child. What’s even worse is when the child is kidnapped from her and she doesn’t know whether he/she is alive and well. I can’t even begin to imagine how that would feel. For one mother, finding her kidnapped son felt almost impossible.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, almost 800,000 children are reported missing each year. In the past, finding an abducted child was incredibly difficult. But in recent years, the likelihood of finding an abducted child has increased.

Ernie Allen, who is the president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, reports that finding 99% of children who have been reported missing in recent years have been returned home alive.

Hope Holland, who is the mother of her son Jonathan, spent 15 years without her baby boy. Her kidnapped son, Jonathan was taken from her in 2000. Jonathan was only three when he was separated from his mother. For the first three years, Holland devoted all her time to finding her son. She did anything and everything to try and find him. Unfortunately, the trail went cold for many years.

Just when Holland thought there was no hope, the case caught a break in 2006. The investigator who was working the case managed to track her ex-husband in San Diego, California. But as quickly as the case caught a break, it went away. The investigator disappeared unexpectedly and Holland waited months before a replacement was given.

The replacement investigator took a different direction to the case and contacted Holland’s ex-husband. Holland told the investigator that she didn’t want him to do that. She feared that by contacting him it might spook him and cause him to go across the border to Mexico. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened.

Despite the setback, Holland had to be strong. She was still a single mother of her oldest son Jacob, so she had to work to support her household. But she never gave up on her son and continued to pursue leads about Jonathan’s whereabouts.
