Rami Zahr, JD

Rami Zahr was Senior Case Manager at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). For over twelve years, he successfully managed hundreds of cases involving children abducted to Hague and non-Hague countries. In addition, he developed abduction prevention strategies and a protocol for handling abductions-in-progress. 

Rami was instrumental in locating and recovering long-term missing children from non-Hague countries such as India. He helped prevent many international abductions-in-progress to countries such as Kuwait, Jordan, and Japan. In 2014, he was recognized by the United States Marshals Service for his efforts in locating and recovering a child, missing for many years, from Mexico. In 2016, Rami helped locate a child, missing for twenty years and taken to an unknown country. The child was later located in Germany and reunited with family.

Rami earned his Juris Doctor degree from Mitchell Hamline School of Law where he conducted independent research on the topic of mediation in non-Hague countries and was president of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Society.
