Diane M. Bassettabout this book: 17 Hours: Tracking Down Our Runaway is one family's gripping hour-by-hour account of their rescue of their daughter Sam after she jumped from her window and ran away into the night. Blindsided by her actions, her parents kicked it into high gear, and using social media, began an all-out effort to reclaim her from the streets. What they learned was their daughter had fallen prey to the latest technique used by sexual predators in the sex trafficking trade, one so cruel that the message must get out how they get to our girls these days. Through the course of the event, notes were kept, lessons learned, and the raw nature of searching for a runaway becomes exposed.
The book includes resources for those searching for a runaway, as well as a Quick Tip Guide to answer the immediate question of, "What do I do?" that hits every parent searching for their child.
Don't wait until you need it to read it!
I'm Diane, the author and Mother to the runaway. I hope you'll join the journey to save Sam and learn something along the way to help another family caught in this same web. Gone are the days of predators locating victims solely through chat rooms. Now they simply come to your local park-and ours sat behind the fire station and next to the police station! The information in this book is a very raw look into my dysfunctional family as we struggled to save Sammy from being sold.
