Undercover operation in Tennessee results in recovery of 150 missing kids

In an impressive win for a collaborative of state and federal law enforcement agencies, a months-long effort known as “Operation Volunteer Strong” has resulted in the recovery of 150 missing Tennessee youth, including several possible human trafficking victims, Breitbart reported.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), planning for the initiative began last fall, with active mobilization having started on Jan. 4 of this year.

Working in unison, the TBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services worked to compile a list of 240 missing kids, subsequently utilizing intelligence data to compile leads that were then pursued in two-week bursts within in three key regions across the state, as Nashville ABC affiliate WKRN reported.

In the end, 150 of the 240 children being sought in the push were recovered, with those youngsters ranging from three to 17 years of age.

In the East Tennessee region, three of the minors recovered through the operation were designated as possible victims of human trafficking, and a TBI investigation in those cases continues. In reference to the urgency of the initiative, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Tennessee, David Jolley stated:

The U.S. Marshals are committed to assisting state and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children to help prevent their falling victim to crimes of violence and exploitation.

Recovery efforts in the Middle and West Tennessee regions yielded another two children who may have been victims of human trafficking, and probes in those cases remain ongoing.

In lauding the success of Operation Volunteer Strong, U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller of the Western District of Tennessee declared his hope that the operation “changes the course for 150 young lives and leads them to the path of opportunities every child deserves.”

Miller went on to promise that law enforcement efforts of this nature should “serve notice to those who prey on society’s most vulnerable that these children are not forgotten. Investigations will continue and the next knock at the door could be for you.”

According to TBI officials, the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services will provide continued assistance to the majority of missing youth recovered through the initiative, and those services could include foster or group home placement.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to
    no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

  9. How fabulous your organization has succeeded in rescuing innocent and vulnerable children from decadent deranged adults. God bless you, you are hero’s.

  10. To all the human traffickers and those that help them. Your eternal days in hell are coming. When God says, “Away from me, I never knew you.” Do not cry and whine. Your deeds earned your punishment.

  11. Where do you think most of these unaccompanied miners crossing into the U.S. are going to wind up. Traffickers are going to be jumping for joy. Biden is having them bused to other cities and states and just dumping them off… Just as Obama did. Makes me sick!

  12. The trafficking of children didn’t start in the U.S., it started in Mexico, and the sickness has jumped our border. This is what Biden allows into our country, no background checks, no health screening…believe me, we do not get the best and brightest, we get the criminals who know they can come here and get rich selling drugs, kidnapping and selling children, just like they do in Mexico…and if you voted for Biden, you’re saying that is ok with you.
    President Trump had stopped the influx of gangs, cartels, and criminals into our country.

  13. makes one wonder, how many of these sick, perverted, filthy, animals, are related to slick willie, Kommissar bidensky, Adum-schiffless, Chuck the schmuck,
    and the rest of the pervs in the DemonRAT party

  14. It’s hard to believe we can spend god knows how much money on immigration, gender studies in other countries but can’t seem to stop chid kidnapping in the USA 🇺🇸. I see more and more homeless and disabled veterans on street conners in the last 2 months than ever before

  15. These lowlife kidnappers and child trafficer’s should face the death penalty. Anyone who harms a child and takes away the innocence of a child should be put down like the filth that they are. They have ruined the lives of thousands and thousands of these young children being sold to pedophiles and those who sold these children into prostitution. God save these children from the grips of those who have satanic agendas for these kids which is total destruction by the minions of satan.

  16. There is only one sentence these sick criminals deserve! I’d love to be left in a room and dish out what they deserve but they will probably not get what they deserve. Life in prison isn’t good enough for these heathens.

      1. And Cuomo, Clinton, Kennedy,,, DemonCrapRat’s
        Trump also had a team working on trapping Human Traffickers. Let’s hope Biden runs out of in in that poison pen before he signs away THAT with another executive order due to he and the SWAMP’s pure HATE.

    1. Today’s juries and judges would sentence YOU as being the criminal CPO Bill. . Today good is evil and evil is good. Wrong is right and right is wrong. They are godless and worship Lucifer.

  17. So happy that they have been rescued but so sad it ever happened!! Wicked people in our world!!!

    1. Patricia I agree with you in that I’m so happy that some were rescued and sad that some were not found. I heard from some people who know more about these things that the US is the biggest provider of stolen children sold to pedophiles and others who hurt children. It seems that we need to clean up our own backyards. I hope that more people are drawn to finding and saving children from these horrible people.

      1. Yes God Bless them for recovering those children; and God Bless those children to recover from their pain and anguish.
