 DNA Database Helps 2000 Missing Kids To Reunite With Parents

A Chinese official has stated that the DNA database of parents has helped over 2,000 abducted children to return home.

According to Chen Shiqu, head of the Ministry of Public Security's office, to crack down on child abductions the ministry has created a DNA database of over 20,000 blood samples from parents who have lost their children. It is to be able to identify abducted children and fight against the crime, Xinhua reported.

Since 2009, police have uncovered nearly 16,000 cases of women trafficking and 12,000 child abduction cases. Authorities rescued over 19,000 abducted children and 35,000 women, Chen said.

The police, however, will keep on implementing the "zero tolerance" policy to the crime, and beef up efforts to crack down on child trafficking, he said.
