COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio law enforcement officials have announced a new approach for responding to reports of child abduction.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine joined other law enforcement officials Wednesday to announce a new model for Ohio’s Child Abduction Response Team.

The team is activated when a child goes missing and law enforcement determines there is immediate danger. The new model involves a coordinator who would compile local resources, including investigators, search and rescue personnel, equipment and victim advocates. The coordinator would assist an incident commander who would be in charge of the search.

The structure of the team the past eight years has involved a specific list of individuals performing specific jobs. As team members have retired or moved to other jobs, some response teams no longer exist.
