The United States Marshals issued a statement on Monday describing the conclusion to Operation We Will Find You 2. This resulted in 200 missing children being recovered across the country.

Operation We Will Find You 2 was the second nationwide missing child campaign of its kind. It ran from 20 May to 24 June and targeted geographical areas where there were high concentrations of missing children. Children who are missing can be in grave danger, as they may be at risk of child sex abuse, exploitation, and other crimes.

Operation We Will Find You 2 was able to recover and remove 123 children who were in dangerous situations with the help of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. According to child welfare or law enforcement agencies, 77 additional missing children were found in safe places. Out of the 200 found children, 173 were runaways in danger, 25 were missing and considered to be otherwise, one was a family kidnapping, and another was not. The youngest child found was only 5 months old. 14 of the missing children were located outside the city they disappeared from. Of the children who were found, 57 percent had recovered within 7 days after the USMS began assisting the case.

It’s always nice to hear unadulterated good news. The majority of the 200 children who went missing have been located and are now on their way home.

In recent months, human trafficking has become a major issue, especially the trafficking and exploitation of children.

Merrick Garland, the Attorney General of the United States, shocked the public by saying something on which people across the political spectrum could agree.

Merrick B. Garland, Attorney General, said: “There are no adequate words to describe how terrified families and communities feel when children go missing. I am grateful for the hard work of the U.S. The U.S. Marshals Service and the National Center for Missing and Exposed Children worked together to locate 200 critically missing children in this six-week search operation. They work to protect children every day.”

Davis. This is one of the top priorities for us, as thousands of children are still missing or at risk.
