Here’s a story the liberal mainstream media will probably ignore because it’s so wonderful and makes law enforcement look great. The U.S. Marshals Service announced that their “Operation Not Forgotten” found thirty-nine missing kids in Georgia.

“Operation Not Forgotten” resulted in the rescue of 26 children, the safe location of 13 children and the arrest of nine criminal associates. Additionally, investigators cleared 26 arrest warrants and filed additional charges for alleged crimes related to sex trafficking, parental kidnapping, registered sex offender violations, drugs and weapons possession, and custodial interference. The 26 warrants cleared included 19 arrest warrants for a total of nine individuals arrested, some of whom had multiple warrants.

(…) “The message to missing children and their families is that we will never stop looking for you.

These missing children were considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area, based on indications of high-risk factors such as victimization of child sex trafficking, child exploitation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and medical or mental health conditions. Other children were located at the request of law enforcement to ensure their wellbeing. USMS investigators were able to confirm each child’s location in person and assure their safety and welfare.

“When we track down fugitives, it’s a good feeling to know that we’re putting the bad guy behind bars. But that sense of accomplishment is nothing compared to finding a missing child,” said Darby Kirby, Chief of the Missing Child Unit. “It’s hard to put into words what we feel when we rescue a missing child, but I can tell you that this operation has impacted every single one of us out here. We are working to protect them and get them the help they need.”

USMS investigators were able to confirm each child’s location in person and assure their safety and welfare.

Operation Not Forgotten was planned and executed by the Marshal Service (USMS), the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), USMS, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia Office of the Attorney General, Georgia Department of Family and Children Services, Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice, the FBI, and the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Since the U.S. Marshals started working with the NCMEC, the agency recovered more than 1,800 kids. Last year alone, they found 295 children. In two-thirds of the cases, the USMS found the child within a week of being asked onto the case.

After I saw the movie, “The Fugitive” I wasn’t a big fan of the U.S. Marshals Service.  But after finding out the rescued all those children, it’s no longer possible to hold a grudge against them just because the USMS was mean to Dr. Richard Kimble.
