Some Children Rescued in Sex Trafficking Ring Were Never Reported Missing

Some of the 168 children who were rescued from a sex trafficking ring last month were never reported missing, the New York Post reports.

The children, as young as 11, were found in hotel rooms, truck stops and homes.

But some were never reported missing, a big concern for child welfare advocates.

Part of the problem, the advocates say, is that the U.S. needs a standardized approach to report missing children. Some states, for example, also don’t require agencies to alert the FBI’s National Crime Information Center.

Some states also lack laws requiring the reporting of missing children.

Legislation pending in Congress would require both.
