State requests for the filing of unlawful flight complaints
in felony parental abduction cases are to be treated in the same
manner as other unlawful flight requests. See USAM 9-69.421. See Parental
Kidnapping Prevention Act of 1980, Pub.L. 96-611, Sec. 10; 94
Stat. 3573, reprinted in notes to 18 U.S.C. § 1073.|
Note that an unlawful flight warrant for the arrest of the
absconding parent does not authorize a search for the minor
child, the taking of the child into custody or the removal of the
child from the state.
COMMENT: International Parental Kidnapping is a federal
offense, 18 U.S.C. § 1204. A discussion of this offense is
set forth at USAM 9-74.200.
