The youngest child was 3 MONTHS old!
We at the +FBI Federal Bureau of Investigation have no greater mission than to protect our nation’s children from harm,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray. “Unfortunately, the number of traffickers arrested—and the number of children recovered—reinforces why we need to continue to do this important work. And we at Blanket Fort Hope envision a world where our children are not disposable but rather invaluable.
”Folks this is happening in our neighborhoods.... to our Children!
The average age of entry is 11-14 years of age with an average lifespan of only 7 years. Please join us in this fight to help us protect our children. We need your help and support to continue with our housing initiatives, services, and education #togetherstronger We are on the ground and in this fight every day.
This is real life! This isn't a movie! These are real children being sold for sex! We need to educate our children and be aware of our surroundings.Thank you for sharing Barbie Clements

Update to this article: 12:35 Pm As part of Operation Cross Country XI, FBI agents and task force officers staged operations in hotels, casinos, and truck stops, as well as on street corners and Internet websites. The average age of the victims recovered during the operation was 15 years old; the youngest was 3 months old.
FBI Denver recovered two minor girls – one 3-month-old and one 5-year-old. The subject, a friend of the children’s family, offered an undercover officer access to the two children for sexual purposes in exchange for $600. The FBI is working with Child Protective Services to conduct a forensic interview and secure safe placement of the children. The subject was placed under arrest.+WIAT 42
