Abduction takes place when someone uses deceit or force to take a person or child away from their home or family. Kidnapping is the taking away or forcibly transporting a person against his or her will and holding them in false imprisonment.

Kidnapping is usually done to gain either power or profit from the victim and a payoff from their family. Abduction is not done for advantage or monetary gain. The most common case of abduction is seen in divorce cases, where one parent is given sole custody of a child. Both terms refer to the unlawful taking of one person by another.
