US Marshals recover 123 missing children in Michigan county in 1 day

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT, MI - Over 120 missing children have been found safe during a one-day human trafficking sting in Michigan.

Operation MISafeKid was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service, Michigan State Police and several other agencies on September 26 in Wayne County. 

It was a missing juvenile sweep to identify and recover missing children from the area with emphasis on locating victims of sex trafficking.

Authorities started investigating all missing child cases prior to the operation. They then began investigating the children's locations by visiting last known

addresses, friend's homes and schools in hopes of finding them in a safe place.

Out of 301 files of missing children, 123 were identified and recovered safely during the operation.

All of the children were interviewed about potentially being sexually victimized or used in a sex trafficking ring during the period of time they were deemed missing.

Three cases were identified as being possible sex trafficking cases.
