Colorado U.S. Marshals Find 11 Children

Eleven missing children were found near Denver, Colorado, by U.S. Marshalls during Operation Lost and Found. Those found were between 12-17 and are likely victims of sex trafficking and exploitation.

From American Military News:

It isn’t clear how many children were only located, but not recovered. But the release said the next steps for recovered children will be handled by local police and the Colorado Department of Human Services.


The Marshals were authorized in 2015 to assist with missing child cases. Since then, the service’s Missing Child Unit has recovered more than 2,300 children, with a child recovered in 56 percent of cases.

“Operation Lost and Found” was the first missing child operation the US Marshals have conducted in Colorado, according to the release.
