Not Your Plaything (NYP) was founded by Amy Lynn Burch in April of 2008 as an extension of her work as a public education entity regarding child-related crimes as well as crimes against women, and exploding the myths regarding sexual crimes against men. Although willing to offer her expertise and assistance to other organizations in the past, Ms. Burch now devotes her time, skills, and knowledge solely to her own professional pursuits and public awareness entities.

Not Your Plaything (NYP) is dedicated to educating the general public regarding current verified missing children cases, crimes against children and the trends associated therein, and profiling known sex offenders and/or child abusers. NYP also deals with educating the public regarding abuse against women, however; not to the exclusion of violence perpetrated by women toward men.  Although most heinous abusive sexual acts, as well as domestic violence is perpetrated man-to-woman or man-to-child, NYP recognizes that women are not excluded from perpetrating acts of violence particularly toward children.

Occasionally the page owner may choose to profile cases not specifically related to crimes against children and reserves the right to modify the page content in order to highlight ongoing criminal activity regardless of the victim’s age and/or gender. Ultimately, this page is dedicated to the capture of those who willfully harm the innocent, whoever they might be.

    Just wondering what your credentials are. Not seeing a bio on here. Have I missed it?

    • Any particular reason why you are using a disposable email service and intentionally hiding your identity? Never mind. I already have the answer to that. Just so you are aware in case you missed the information the first time, I do not respond to those who hide their identities behind obscure names and fake email addresses. I am responding to you now just in case you were not clearly aware of that fact before you chose to hide your information. When you can engage me with your true identity, then I’ll be happy to talk with you.

  2. Thanks.
