The Chronicle investigated a network of abductors for hire who prey on the desperation of parents unable to control their troubled teenagers. The stories precipitated an outcry by parents, lawyers and youth advocates against abductors for hire, calls for legislation to stop them and an investigation in New Mexico of one of the wilderness camps described in the stories. Legislation is being drafted and the investigation is still open, June 22 - 24 and Oct. 25, 1994.
