In my opinion, children never go missing if they are in under their parents' care. With parents' care, they can realize what is the right way to to go. In addition, when parents see any evident of going missing, they can hinder this action. Therefore it's so difficult to going missing when the children receive a lot of care from their parents.

Parents really cannot be in control 100% of the time. It only takes a couple of seconds for a child to be lost in a crowd, or worse to be abducted. Does this call for more use of reins, harnesses, or the child being strapped in a pushchair, depending on age and to what age?

Yes, Children go missing when parents are careless, (Agreed)
The first school and learning place for a baby is the mother's hug and the family environment. If you give them good upbringing and teach them better ways how to live, definitely they can easily handle the remaining life by themselves.

Parents should be responsible for their children

At the first, I believe that, it's the parents mistake. In some place there has lot of people, the parents should hold child's hand all the time. If you don't, and get the child lost, that is your mistake. This is your child, not others. So take the responsible to them.

I don't agree. Sometimes, even the most careful parents (the doting ones) can face such situations, when kids are missing. According to the GlobalMissingKids statistics, each year the UK and Germany have 112,853 and 100,000 kids missing correspondingly. These are the biggest numbers in the world. Does that mean that German or British parents are more careless that others? While in Canada, only 45,288 are reported to be missing yearly.
