Action to be taken in the event of an abduction

Each country which operates the 1980 Hague Convention and the Revised Brussels II Regulation has to appoint a Central Authority which functions as the contact point for all applications under the Convention and the Regulation.
The Central Authority in England and Wales is the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU).
The Unit is based in the Office of the Official Solicitor and Public Trustee (OSPT) which is part of the Ministry of Justice. Office hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
