Abduction Attempts Prompt Warning

THE New South Wales Government is warning parents to take extra care when sending their children to school.
Parents were urged to reinforce to their children the warnings about "stranger danger" and to explain how to call for help.
The warning, from Education Minister Carmel Tebbutt, comes after a string of attempted child snatchings in the state in the last two months.
There have been 12 abduction attempts involving strangers approaching children aged between 10 and 16 in Sydney alone in the past two months.
Children should travel in a group if walking to school and should have a list of people to contact for help if they need to, Ms Tebbutt said today.
"Teachers do a great job in integrating these messages into daily classroom life, but we need parents to reinforce these messages," she said in a statement.
The advice comes ahead of Child Protection Week, which runs from September 4 to 10.
The NSW government announced earlier this month it would adopt a US-style child abduction alert system.
Radio and television broadcasters, RTA roadside message boards and taxi and public transport dispatch systems will relay details of missing children every 15 minutes under the new Amber Alert plan.
A hotline number 1300 880 021 exists for people to report suspicious activity or threats to students' safety around schools.
