To all the men and women associated with finding these children and capturing some of the worst predators on Earth – I SALUTE YOU!
MSNBC didn’t think this was important enough to report?
Why is the liberal media not reporting this? Let me guess, the offenders are in the country illegally.
How many children were missing that were in the Epstein camp?

US Marshals find 39 missing children in Georgia in ‘Operation Not Forgotten’
The nine suspects face a total of 26 charges, including sex offender violations
A two-week mission to rescue endangered and missing children in Georgia led to the recovery of 39 juveniles and the arrests of nine suspects, the U.S. Marshals Service announced Thursday.
“The message to missing children and their families is that we will never stop looking for you,” Donald Washington, the director of the Marshals Service, said in a statement.
“Operation Not Forgotten” led to the rescue of 26 missing children and the safe location of 13 more, according to authorities.
The nine suspects face a total of 26 charges, including sex offender violations.
The Marshals assisted state and local authorities in a number of separate cases during the operation. The federal authorities periodically assist police with federal resources to help clear separate missing persons cases.
Authorities said the missing children were at high risk of child sex trafficking, exploitation and abuse – and some suffered from medical and mental health conditions.
The 2015 Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act gave the Marshal’s broader authority to assist state and local police departments tracking down missing children, regardless of whether fugitives or sex offenders are involved in the case, officials said.

Just last year, the Marshals helped recover almost 300 missing children, according to authorities.
Human trafficking, also known as modern-day slavery, occurs in every state – victimizing mostly children and women.
“When we track down fugitives, it’s a good feeling to know that we’re putting the bad guy behind bars,” said Darby Kirby, chief of the Missing Child Unit. “But that sense of accomplishment is nothing compared to finding a missing child.”
“Operation Not Forgotten” involved months of planning before it began, authorities said. Other agencies involved include the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia’s Office of the Attorney General, the state’s departments of Family and Children Services and of Juvenile Justice, the FBI and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

There were 417 human trafficking cases in Georgia last year, according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
In neighboring Florida, which has roughly double Georgia’s population, there were 896 human trafficking cases in 2019.

On the federal level, the Justice Department (DOJ) secured convictions against 475 human traffickers in 2019, according to the State Department’s annual Trafficking in Persons Report. Of those, 454 involved sex trafficking, and only 21 involved labor.
Why are there SO many men willing to traffic and have sex with children? SO many. Every day, all over the world. I’m about to give up on hope for humanity.
Not just men. Lots of women also involved. DOJ reports up to 48% of defendants in these cases are women. They are typically the ones who lure the children into a place where they can be snatched. Also, lots of angry, non-custodial mothers kidnap and sell or kill their own children out of spite for the fathers.
When I read that the youngest was 3, I was heartbroken. Thank you for catching some of these animals!
And the Democrats want to disband the police. I’m sure Pelosi can give us a word or two on the “humanity” of the sex trafficker.
