This page consist of a list of youth who have dissapeared from a program. Whether they are dead or living under a different identity is not known. Dates of disappearances is not accurate as most programs wont report escaped because they wan't to avoid bad press.

They settle the lawsuits in private with the parents instead.

Purpose of this page

The purpose of this page is to get parents and relative knowledge that their son or daughter is alive. Children should be with their parents instead of living on the streets or being placed outside the family unit.

The length of the victim list over children who have lost their lives either during the program or after are too long already.
