Nearly 40 Children Rescued in Georgia As Part of a Sex Trafficking Bust

Thirty-nine children were rescued in Georgia from being sex trafficked after authorities, both local and federal, secured their safety as part of “Operation Not Forgotten.” The bust spanned about 20 counties within the Atlanta metro area. According to reports, “[the] U.S.Marshals Fugitive Hunters, and other agencies, scoured north and middle Georgia looking for missing and exploited children. In all, 26 endangered children were recovered and another 13 missing children were found.”

A spokesperson for the U.S. Marshals Service said, “These missing children were considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area, based on indications of high-risk factors such as victimization of child sex trafficking, child exploitation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and medical or mental health conditions,” adding,  “Other children were located at the request of law enforcement to ensure their wellbeing.”
