Scott was the speaker at Monday night's Ride for Missing Children meeting to help raise awareness for The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
It was the first unsupervised visit with his mother in 1979 that would forever change Scott Berne's life.
Scott's mother flew the children out of The United States, which began his two year journey living in five different countries, and leaving everything behind as they moved.
"When you're with your mother and you're brainwashed that this is the way it is, you're young and your sustainable to that way of thinking," he said.
But it was a 1981 August edition of Lady's Home Journal that saved Scott when he was back living in the U.S.
"A babysitter had seen our photos, and she immediately called the F.B.I., it was the most traumatic day of my life," he said.
Scott says he and his brother were one of the first test cases for parental abductions.
"No one knew what to do with a parentaly abducted child. I spent two weeks in a juvenile hall because they didn't know," he said.
Because of his experience, Scott wants to raise awareness through his book, and speaking to people to show the affect of being abducted by a parent does to a child.
