Child abduction drill part of new program

In recent years counties in Utah have handled several high profile missing and abducted child cases prompting Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to organize a Utah Child Abduction Response Team, or CART, and he encouraged counties to do the same. After attending eye-opening workshops on missing and abducted children last February, the Cache County Attorney’s Office and local law enforcement obtained a grant with which to create a countywide CART. County Attorney James Swink says Cache CART is a joint operation across several different agencies. Cache CART will hold a mock exercise Thursday, Dec. 17, involving law enforcement from Box Elder and Oneida counties responding to a missing or abducted child scenario. Cache CART will be at the USU Spectrum and the LDS Stake Centers at 1230 North 600 East. Swink says the public needs to know this is strictly a practice exercise.
