22 Aug Children: Our Most Endangered Species
My name is Charlotte Blasier. My agency is Missing Persons & Sensitive Crime Investigations. For 5 years I was the chief investigator for the Alaska Juvenile Crime Commission. After returning to California, I became partners with former U.S. Marshall, now deceased Robert LaRoche, in his investigation agency. I opened my current agency in 1986. My husband is renown DNA attorney Robert D. Blasier, Jr. We reside in El Dorado Hills, CA.
Dr. Claire Reeves and I met over 25 years ago. We were guest speakers and panelists for the First National Conference on Crimes Against Children in Washington, D.C. We immediately became kindred spirits. Beginning on the day we met, we have maintained a friendship and worked side by side protecting children, solving cases, locating predators, locating evidence, aiding law enforcement and when necessary working in spite of law enforcement.
I have recovered missing children and adults in the United States and in foreign countries. I have worked with local law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshall’s Office, Interpol, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Gendarmerie Royale du Canada, Scotland Yard, various U.S. Embassies in the U.S. and abroad, South African Police Service, Police Nationale of France, the Policia Federal and the Policía Federal Ministerial of Mexico, Australian Federal Police, Frankfort House of Germany, the Dominican Republic National Police, and the Jamaica Constabulary Force. I proudly serve on the executive board of M.A.S.A.
Dr. Reeves and I have worked on cases ranging from physical, mental and sexual abuse to neglect. Abuse perpetrated by siblings, mothers, fathers, step-parents, boyfriends, girlfriends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, friends and strangers to doctors, clergy, teachers, care providers, school staff and people in the recreational field. We have worked on cases involving members of the underground movement aiding and abetting child abductors. We have been instrumental in obtaining evidence and locating perpetrators and missing children to the point that the children were rescued from the underground and the perpetrator(s) were apprehended.
Dr. Reeves and I work separately and sometime in tandem on child custody cases. We work well together in those cases because Dr. Reeves and I approach and obtain information from primarily two different areas. In my opinion this has proven to be a unique and marvelous combination and approach.
Dr. Reeves and I have testified in numerous cases. Dr. Reeves has testified as an expert in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
I have gone undercover to infiltrate cults and underground movements hiding missing children and their abductors. I have gone undercover to work on cases involving child abduction, child pornography, snuff films, child prostitution, child sex trade, child slavery, forced adult prostitution and adult slavery, elder abuse involving physical, finances and sexual, con-artists, white collar crime, identity theft, stalking and homicide.
From the moment of your last labor pain, your infant is at risk!
95 percent of child molestation can be prevented. We have the knowledge to stop it.
Today, living in the United States, there are 39 million adults who have survived child sexual abuse.
Today, more than three million American children are victims.
In a 2012 maltreatment report, of the victims who were sexually abused, 26% were in the age group of 12–14 years and 34% were younger than 9 years.
Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that a minimum of 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before the age of 18
In year 2002, it was estimated that it has been 125,000 generations since the emergence of the first Homo species, and 7,500 generations of humans since the emergence of Homo sapiens. Civilization started only 500 generations ago. And, the number of people who have ever lived is 85,000,000,000. That is eighty-five billion people. Humans are more intelligent today than ever before. And, humans are the most intelligent form of life on this planet. The most intelligent? While by and large that is accepted as the truth, but I suspect it has more to do with only on certain subjects and about certain things.
In animals, infanticide involves the killing of young offspring by a mature animal of it’s own species. Infanticide caused by sexual conflict has the general theme of the killer (often male) becoming the new sexual partner of the victim’s parent, which would otherwise be unavailable.
I do not find it a coincidence when I hear of yet another case of a man molesting, injuring or murdering his girlfriend’s infant or child. Somewhat of an animalistic thought process. Not very intelligent.
On April 10, 1866, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is founded in New York City by 54 year old philanthropist and diplomat, Henry Bergh.
However, it was not until 1875 that the world’s first organization devoted entirely to child protection came into existence- The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
- A child is abused or neglected every 47 seconds in the U.S.
- More than 3 million children are subjects of at least one child abuse case each year.
- 1 in 10 (1 in 7 girls and 1 in 25 boys) children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
- The median age for reported abuse is nine years old.
- 90% of perpetrators are individuals the child knows.
- In 2013, it was estimated that more than 1,500 children died from abuse and neglect.
- 1 in 5 youth, ages 10 to 17, receive sexual solicitation or are approached online.
- Only one third of households with internet access protect their children with filtering or blocking software.
Every year three million children are victims of child abuse. Neglected and abused children are nine times more likely to become active in criminal activity. It is estimated that 1/3 of abused children go on to become abusers.
I have been an investigator the vast majority of my life. I have interviewed male and female pre-school children to senior citizens about how they got involved in the sex industry. Children as young as 3 1/2 years of age spoke of their abuser(s) and detailed stories of incidents involving abuse by from one to numerous abusers at a time. While senior citizens, mostly female, told stories of abuse going back as far as they can recall, to stories of it beginning in youth or teenaged years. No matter the age, several threads remained constant. They always felt at least partially responsible or guilty, especially if they ever felt any sense of enjoyment from a sexual act. They always have very low self esteem. They often shifted from being very withdrawn to being the class clown. The class clown or rowdy child is trying to outrun their mind. Chaos is their way of not having to face the memories and the feeling that when others look at them, they ‘know’ they were ‘bad’ or ‘tainted’.

EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT LIVE IN YOUR HOME
No one is allowed to touch any part of your body that your bathing suit covers! If anyone talks about or tries to touch part of your body that your bathing suit covers, you must say, “NO!” then leave and tell someone right away. If there’s a phone, call 911 and say you need help. Encourage your children often to let you know if anyone makes them feel uncomfortable and to tell you immediately if anyone, including family member or friend, tell them to keep a secret and/or to not tell about something. Remind them that you will always believe them, keep them safe from anyone trying to do the wrong thing, and that they will never be in trouble for something someone does to them or for anything someone makes them do.
It is devastatingly important to not be too good of a friend to your child or teenager. By that I mean to not allow them too much privacy. You must love your children enough to let them hate you once in awhile. Do invade their privacy when it comes to phone calls, Emails and postal mail. Do look through their diary, journals, notebooks, backpacks, pockets and wastebaskets. Do know who their friends are and especially do know who their friend’s parents are. Raising a child is not baseball! You don’t get three chances. You can’t play by girls rules. There are no ‘overs’. All there is, is one opportunity to do the right thing. Because no one should say they don’t mind taking chances.
For activities outside of school like music lessons, sports, gymnasiums, swimming, skating and park activities, if not you, then another adult or older teenager should be in attendance. Know your children’s school teachers, counselor and coaches. Know the people your children are told to obey. Know the people your children are told to not question.
Always find out ahead of time the names of everyone involved in taking your children’s photographs or videos and verify they have passed a background check. Although it is not too common, many pedophiles and their associates have used the ‘job’ as children’s photographer for schools, pageants, and sporting functions in order to gain not only photographs of minors, but to gain information about the family, beginning with address and phone number. They already have the child’s name and some other information.
