TRACKING PARENTAL ABDUCTION (System would ID worldwide cases)

International authorities say they plan to create a new computerized system to identify hundreds of cases worldwide of parental child abduction and to keep track of how they are resolved.  William Duncan, deputy secretary general of the Hague Convention that oversees international child abduction disputes, says the new system, funded in part by the Canadian government, is an important first step to getting a better handle on the problem and discouraging illegal, sometimes violent, methods of recovering children who are taken improperly to foreign lands.
