On September 11, 1995, 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce was kidnapped at gunpoint from his school bus stop, sodomized, and shot as he was trying to escape.  To free more children from the clutches of sexual predators, The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction was established in June of 1996 in honor of Jimmy and his courage in trying to get home even after hours of pain and humiliation.

"Don't kill the child....Don't kill the child. Because if you do, people will not forget, they will not forgive. We will hunt you down and we will put you to death."—Don Ryce speaks to the media after Juan Carlos Chavez was executed in Starke, Florida for raping and killing his 9-year-old son, Jimmy, 18 years ago on September 11, 1995. (VIDEO Courtesy WFOR-CBS 4 Miami)

“A bloodhound has 60 times the scent power of a German Shepherd and is the only dog that can follow a human trail more than a few hours old.  
A bloodhound is your best single bet for bringing a child, abducted by a predator, home, alive. We believe that Jimmy would be alive today if a bloodhound had immediately been brought in to search for our son.”
