Abduction versus kidnap

Post by Phoebe on 07.05.17 13:19

Apologies if this is on wrong thread. It has always struck me as suspicious that the McCanns and their friends immediately began to refer to Madeleine's disappearance as an "abduction" rather than the more commonly used term "kidnap". One would expect, under immediate stress and shock, colloquial terminology to dominate. Given the "umming and ahhing" in their statements and the "you knows", it jars that such an oddly technical term is always used. IMO this is because kidnap is, more often that not, for ransom, leverage or revenge and one expects the kidnappers to make contact. The McCanns immediately seemed to cast doubt on the hope that any contact would be made by those who had taken their daughter, instantly introducing the idea of "snatched by paedophiles" who would be unlikely to ever return her. If they were truly hoping that she could be returned surely they would have clung to the notion, however illogical, that a large enough ransom or reward would lead to her recovery yet they seemed to discount this idea from the moment she was announced missing.

Very good point. Subconscious leakage.

And not only abduction but by paedophiles too according to Gerry.

It always struck me as odd that they would assume she was abducted/kidnapped.  Most parents first words on finding a child not where they expect them to be would be she is Missing!  First thoughts are usually wandered off and you immediately start searching and ask people if they have seen the child.  
Kidnap is very rare children wandering off is not
