U.S. Marshals Rescue 200 Missing Children in Nationwide Operation

The United States Marshals Service has successfully wrapped up Operation We Will Find You 2, bringing in 200 missing children who were scattered across the nation. This operation, focusing on areas with high numbers of critically missing children, was a significant effort to combat child sex trafficking, abuse, and exploitation.

Thanks to the collaboration with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the operation led to the rescue of 123 children from dangerous situations, with an additional 77 children located in safe conditions. The age range of the rescued children varied greatly, with the youngest being just 5 months old. It’s a relief to know that the majority of these children are now on their way back to their families, safe and sound.

Attorney General Merrick Garland acknowledged the fear and anguish experienced by missing children and their families, praising the U.S. Marshals Service and the NCMEC for their dedication to locating and rescuing the missing children. U.S. Marshals Service Director Ronald L. Davis emphasized the importance of this mission, highlighting the ongoing efforts to find thousands of other missing children at risk. 


Some of the notable rescues during the operation included a 16-year-old girl held captive in Indiana, a 15-year-old trafficking victim found in Miami, and a 12-year-old survivor of sexual abuse placed in foster care in Portland, Oregon. These success stories underscore the critical work being done by federal law enforcement in safeguarding children from harm.

Amidst the recent criticisms faced by law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Marshals Service stands out for its commendable efforts in the realm of missing child recovery. The results of Operation We Will Find You 2 demonstrate the dedication and effectiveness of the Marshals Service in upholding the safety and well-being of America’s youth.
