    I hope at some point it is revealed where these children came from ,i.e are any of them listed as officially missing, or is this a case of parental knowledge or involvement.

    Our news just said that most of the children came from foster care or were runaways. They also said that more than 100 of the 150 arrests were here in Wisconsin. That can't be right, can it?

    The article at the msnbc link stated many of the kids were from foster homes. It makes you wonder how often foster children are reported missing or if their names just get lost in the system.

    Glad they rescued these kids, I hope they do more of these stings.

    The Wisconsin Department of Justice announced Monday that Wisconsin officials participated in a large-scale, FBI-led child sex trafficking operation that rescued 10 children.

    The operation is known nationwide as Operation Cross Country VII, and the three-day operation in Wisconsin was conducted in the areas of Milwaukee, Madison, Wisconsin Dells and the Fox Valley, according to the release.

    Officials said ten children were rescued, which is third in the nation, and 100 suspects were arrested in Wisconsin as part of the operation.

    I just read a post in one of the threads where a member asked if any of these kids are recovered! Wish I could remember who asked because here's the answer!

    So happy to see this, especially in Oakland. Oakland recently spent a year or two and were finally successful at closing down a couple of hotels with child prostitutes.

    The FBI is surely a big help to these cities. It at least makes their job easier to get some of it stopped.

    I have a feeling most of these kids were never reported missing.
