Leo and Jerry are the original iStand kids.  Both are home and thriving after unlawful retention and abduction.  Their "Tech Talk" session will explain & demonstrate how online platforms, such as Discord can be utilized to discreetly communicate with your child during their abduction, opening a path of communication and  connection while apart.

Leo's mom and iStand Co-Founder Alissa E. Hindle and Jerry's dad and Jerry's Army Founder Bob Pfeifer will join their sons in this closing session to bring hope to parents still fighting for their children's return.
Bob will also discuss the use of social media to locate missing children, as he did when finding Jerry.
