US Marshals Recover 45 Missing Children in Operation ‘Autumn Hope’


The US Marshals Service has recovered 45 missing children in Ohio during an operation called ‘Autumn Hope‘ that also resulted in 169 arrests.

The operation was led by Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force and Marshals in Southern Ohio and Southern West Virginia and turned out to be the largest anti-human trafficking bust in the state’s history.

The Trump administration has been aggressively dismantling human and sex trafficking rings across the country like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

There were more than just children rescued in this operation.

Forty-five missing children were recovered, along with 109 human trafficking survivors, WBNS reported. It's unclear how many of those were linked to the 169 arrests.

Attorney General Dave Yost said they had four main goals with this operation.

the operation had four main goals: Rescuing victims of human trafficking and referring them to social services; recovering missing and exploited children; apprehending those seeking to have sex with a minor; and arresting male johns seeking to buy sex.

A similar operation in August, dubbed 'Operation Not Forgotten' recovered 39 children.

Before the Trump presidency, human trafficking and child trafficking was rarely talked about yet it was a huge and disgusting business. Many mainstream networks still don't cover this issue with any depth at all.

  1. Thank God we have men and women who are willing to stand up to these horrible people who prey on our children.
    Thank you all so very much for your heroism…you are all heroes in my book.

    1. Trump is doing really well without actually taking any credit for the past rescues. When he is reelected next week, we all need to support him and each other to allow his administration togo headlong into the swamp which includes Pelozzia the Bidens A S and many others. We must help save the more important parts of our freedoms by saying “enough already” and taking a stand.

  2. Thank you so much it’s wonderful that we still have people that care enough you are heroes in my book

  3. What exactly defines “missing children”? This article and headline implies that US Marshalls rescued 45 children from sex trafficking, but then it does not actually say that in the article. Most of the “rescued” children were the objects of highly contentious custody battles between divorced estranged parents, who were with the parent other than the one chosen in most cases by non-empathetic courts — the parent that the child may or may not have wanted to be with and who may or may not have been chosen by the court based on the best interests of the child.
    Apart from addressing here the wishes and best interests of the child, the key issue here is that this kind of “Operation” is done mostly for the slight of hand to generate these kinds of headlines as a ruse to make it look like something is being done about “sex trafficking,” when in reality most of the “rescued children” have little or nothing to do with sex trafficking. The ruse is to go after a small handful of powerless low lifes and bad actors in the name of “fighting sex trafficking” — as a cover for never going after the real “sex traffickers” — the powerful elite pedophiles that inhabit the Deep State and pull the strings.
    When will the US Marshall Service mount an “Operation” to go after know pedophiles Bill and Hillary Clinton, Senator Menendez, the Podesta brothers, Hunter Biden, former RNC Chairman Michael Steele (who those with more than just a short-term memory will remember was forced to resign after being caught pimping young prostitutes to big RNC donors, the late George H.W. Bush (who was directly involved while Vice President in pimping young boys from Nebraska to the powerful pedophile elite of Washington, DC in what became known as the Franklin Cover-up), etc., etc., etc.
    Until the US Marshall service mount an “Operation” against the real powers behind “sex trafficking,” nothing will change — and these small time operations are just more Deep State fakery.

    1. There would be no sex trafficking if there was no mankind calling for that service. Political leadership (government) in this country can only stop lawbreakers, it cannot stop people from wanting to do this vile behavior. Just like drug trafficking, if we the people do not govern ourselves this story will play over and over again. So what if some are disgusted by the thought. Children and women are silently crying out for us, the people of the USA, to personally DO SOMETHING about it.

      1. We never had this crap 50 years ago or even 30 years ago this is all because of liberal “if it feels good do it” BS. 99% of our social/criminal problems are do to liberals. These are the ones who need reeducation.

        1. Not true. It’s called slavery. And its been going on for thousands of years around the globe. We don’t have a monopoly on it.
          I am not saying I disagree with the viewpoint that liberals are facilitating it through their inability to confront evil or suppressive reasonableness or even their own unethical behavior.
          But please, educate yourself more fully on our global history and “look” instead of listening to those who love to “stir the pot” creating hostility to cover their own crimes.

    2. Be careful of your examples. The Franklin Cover-up was another hoax trying to take out a Republican. “Acusers” went to prison for perjury and the grand jury found the allegations were unfounded.

      1. If the consequences aren’t severe enough this vile behavior will continue, public executions are a good idea! That will certainly deter these monsters from destroying our children, not only physically but mentally and emotionally scar them for life if they survive this horrific crime!

    1. It seems to me that the opposite is taking place. Trump has this posted only days before the election. He is politicizinga problem that is neither Democrat or republican, but American.

    2. It couldn’t have been anything to do with Biden, he hasn’t done anything in 47 years! Surprised they don’t lie about this too!

    3. The Democrats constantly cover for their derelicts. They protect them along with the likes of CNN and MCNBC. For the Democrats who watch those two stations, it’s no wonder they’re so ignorant about what’s going on in this country. If that’s all you hear then of course that’s all you believe. And what about 60 minutes, those empty heads. Look at Leslie Stahl. Good lord, talk about protection of Biden. When Trump attempted to tell her anything, she denied any and all information coming out about Joe Biden. By the way Leslie, It is and has been verified. The FBI has had Hunters laptop since 2019. Educate your damn selves.

  4. I was talking to an African American the other day who said, “We’ve got to do something about separating children from their families at the border.” I asked him, “What would you propose to do about the slavery problem at the border?” His eyes glazed over. He had no idea what I was talking about. So I elaborated about all these adults escorting children across the border who then use these children as slaves–more often than not in the sex slave industry.

    The person I was talking to is a good man. But like most people have no idea of what is really going on at the border or elsewhere. The point is the media and others are mostly concerned with controlling what we see and hear in order to control us and shape our thinking. So you’ll see stories like this at Inside Scoop, but in most of the media? public education and the like? Never! Unless it involves a Republican.

  5. HEY NEWS REPORTERS WHERE ARE YOU MORALS THAT YOUR NOT COVERING THIS. THESE4 ARE OUR CHILDREN AND FOR THEM TO BE USED AS SEX SLAVES WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. WE KNOW FROM AFGHAN AND IRAQ HAVE SEX SLAVES BUT WE WILL NOT HAVE IT HERE . AS FAR AS I’M CONCERN WANT TO MAKE A BET THAT IT IS RUN BY MUSLIMS——— NOT GOING TO HAVE IT THEY CAN GO BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY.!

    1. Trycklessbergness does not want people to see truth . Give a summary of the article and the article where people can find more data . Then wait a day for him to delete your infor for it not being backed with evidence. Repost to 3 or 4 friends the first time so u have copies so u can get the info out . ( if you recognize the war we r truly in And want to do your part)

  6. Why won’t MSM cover this issue?

    Because MSM is totally in the back pocket of the Democrat Party and there a lot of Democrat politicians and big donors from business, media and entertainment that are involved in child trafficking and sex with minors. There are compromised people from both sides of the aisle but most are Democrat. The estimated number of compromised people is huge and there have been serious concerns over the continuity of government if they were all arrested at the same time.

    Go ahead, laugh, and make sarcastic responses all you want. We are very close to having all of this revealed to such an extent that it will be impossible for MSM to sweep under the rug. What we will learn about what is being done will shake humanity to its core. It is extremely dark.

    President Trump has been after these people since day 1 and has made great progress. The best is yet to come during his second term.

    1. ABSOLUTELY AGREE!! They won’t be able to hide the TRUTH anymore!! All the TREASONOUS TRAITOR Media will be exposed along with the EVIL Corruption that has been going on for EONS! AND the people who will be Exposed for the EVIL they have perpetrated on children And adults, And the TREASONOUS TRAITORS that they are…. And for Selling out America and Americans!! Guantanamo Bay is Ready!!!
      People are going to be so shocked that some will have trouble comprehending the Very EVILNESS OF IT AND THAT IT ACTUALLY EXISTS! Not a horror movie but real EVIL! People being Shocked and Sickened Right to the CORE YES! TRAGIC!

  7. MSM must be dismantled, it’s owners, managers, editors and reporters arrested and put in special prisons. No phone, no PC, , no snail mail.,

  8. My heart aches for the families that are affected such a horrible thing. I thank God that someone is concerned enough to do something about it. Thank you President Trump and all those involved in rescuing those who have been sold into slavery. My prayers are with those who are still waiting to be rescued.

  9. you ask why? we’ve seen people like Epstein running these kinds of operations. maybe … just maybe … those in high places are responsible? just a thought …

  10. They do not cover it because they are owned by people who deal in human trafficking, plus a lot of the main stream”media” lol, are involved. Then many judges, and others in a position of power are involved. Very big business worldwide.

  11. Thank God they found this sex trafficking ring. Poor little ones may be ruined for life. I’m sure the main stream media will not mention the life saving heroes nor our great President that has worked on stopping this.

  12. THANK DOD PRESDENT IS DOING SOMETHING NOW I WOULD DO THIS TO ALL THE CREEPY MEN THAT BUY THESE CHILDREN SHOULD HAVE THEIR NAME AND PICTURE ALL OVER THE INTERNET AN JAIL TIME SICK JUST PLANE SICK

  13. The fact that this criminal activity has been going on for decades is enough to gag a maggot ! No matter how much counseling, treatment, etc. is done, these children are and will be damaged and scarred for life.
    The ” mainstream networks” that “don’t cover this issue with any depth at all” should be held up for ridicule at least and financial penalty for the lousy job they are doing in reporting….which is their alleged purpose. ! They are way too busy making up manure/baloney stories about President Trump.

  14. The media doesn’t cover it because Trump is doing something they should have been screaming about years ago. Since it is Trump getting it done, they refuse to cover it. it just goes to show you that the media is just as evil and the traffickers. Have a good day.

  15. Awesome job, would love to see the Marshall Service take lead and let the FBI take a break for a bit until they get a few things straitened out.

  16. I was told by a professor back in 1975 that children were sold to Japan and the FBI was aware of it. Still the FBI and the press said nothing about it to the press. She said the FBI didn’t want to have the bad publicity. Disgusting. Wealthy people including politicians are able to buy sex and their crimes are covered up. We need to clean house at the FBI.

  17. God Bless all the US Marshalls involved in this rescue, and all the victims that are now being helped to return to families and some semblance of a normal life. God bless President Trump who has made these arrests and rescues a priority in his Administration. He is truly an Avenging Arch Angel.

  18. Thank goodness that they are finally taking this issue seriously. One wonders what is the real count of these children.May they all find love, and understanding and all the help they need as they recover from this outrage.

  19. People would rather save an animal than a child. Animals don’t talk and can be put down if there is a problem. You cannot put down a child so rich people with big mouths do not have big hearts just an easy way to make themselves
    appear to be good hearted. If there were as many commercials about saving children maybe we wouldn’t have such a crisis and people would look out for children more than animals. Children are unable to speak out any more so than a dog. Save the children then save the animal. That’s when humanity loses and the criminals win.

  20. These Swamp Rats in Congress also have a slush fund. The money in it is our tax dollars. It was uncovered around 1 1/2 yrs ago but slide off the deck into the deep mucky swamp in DC. We must bring it up again. Why should we pay for their sexual hunger for kids and women?
    there is a retired Navy Seal and some other brave caring men that go to other countries hunting for kids that have been taken and sold into the sex trade. These brave men recover kids for families, families that don’t have money to hire men like them. Donations help them go rescue the children and you never hear about them. But thank God they are here for families. Some places in Mexico are dangerous for kids to play in their yard or go to store with their mom. Kids are snatched from their mothers hands.
    God help us all.

  21. Why the heck has it taken up till President Trump came into power, to finally take down these known groups? Where the hell were Obama and the Bushes? And idiots out there are preparing to vote for another moron, Joe. Really?

  22. The mainstream media does not cover these operations because Pres Trump is instermental in rescueing these adults and children and heaven forbid he gets any credit for anything good!!!!! When are they going to grow up and act like people that are interested in reporting ALL the news?

  23. What Is The Lolita Express? Epstein’s Infamous Sex Plane …

    Bill Clinton is among the prominent people listed in the flight logs, having took several trips on the Lolita Express with a softcore porn actress listed under “massages” in Epstein’s address book, also published by Gawker.
    What Is The Lolita Express? Epstein’s Infamous Sex Plane …

  24. Way to go US Marshals! Love you, love you, love you! Thank you for all the hard work you do…

  25. Thank God for Pres. Trump’s action on human trafficking. I am so ,glad that those people are safe now. Thanks to the men and women who performed this exercise of rescue.

  26. Dear brothers and sisters (for we all survived the great flood), through our ancestor NOAH,
    EPHESIANS 6:12 FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES
    There IS A GREAT BATTLE GOING ON ! THESE PEOPLE ARE INSTUMENTS OF EVIL. PRAY AGAINST THIS! PRAYER IS A POWERFUL TOOL! PRAY FOR THOSE INVOLVED TO BE EXPOSED NO MATTER WHAT PARTY THEY REPRESENT! AMERICA BECAME GREAT BeCAUSE OF CHRISTIANITY, THE CONSTITUTION, AND CAPITALISM! GOD HAS BLESSED US AND HEARS OUR PRAYERS FOR THESE CHILDREN AND WOMEN. A CALL TO ARMS! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES! AND GOD, THANK YOU FOR OUR FREEDOMS AND RICH BLESSINGS DAILY! YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE PRAISED! 🇱🇷🗽🔔➕

  27. So proud of these law officers. God bless them. This is such a large operation around the world. There are literally thousand of children enslaved. When I was the Joint Detachment Chief in Saudi Arabia, there were agents sent to poor areas of the world and “bought” children, took them back to SA, sold them there like the slaves or sex objects they would be. The buying party would lock the passport so the child had no opportunity to escape. So sad.
