"They feel very guilty."

Oh, no doubt they do.

"Hey, honey, Adam's missing."

"Really? Oh, he'll turn up anytime now."

"Yeah, you're probably right. Kids are tough. He'll be fine."

Ten years later.

"Hey, honey, you realize Adam's still missing?"

"Is he? Hmmm...what do you think we should do about it?"

"Well, gee, I don't know. I don't think we need to do anything. He'll be fine."

"Yeah, you're right."

Wow. What do you even say about something like this? What sort of parents don't report their child missing, even if he or she is an adopted child? It's just sick.
