  • 24 missing or runaway children were located or recovered.
  • Of the 24, four missing children were located or recovered internationally – three in Mexico and one in Puerto Rico.
  • Two of the missing children were located or recovered out-of-state – one each in California and Oklahoma.
  • A child sexual assault and a human trafficking case are under investigation.
“Runaway children are at high risk of becoming trafficking victims and falling prey to individuals who want to hurt them and jeopardize their health and safety,” said Erik P. Breitzke, special agent in charge for HSI El Paso. “I commend the law enforcement agencies and non-governmental organizations that participated in this operation that very well may have helped save lives. We will continue to collaborate and work tirelessly to identify and recover missing children.”

Individuals located were offered the services of DPS Victims Services as well as the HSI Victim Assistance Program, a central piece of HSI’s victim-centered approach to assist with the investigation of crimes.

This investigation highlights how local, state and federal law enforcement partners work together to combat child sex trafficking and human trafficking. If you think you have seen a missing child, or if you have information on online solicitation/exploitation of a minor; contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The NCMEC Hotline (1-800-843-5678) is staffed 24 hours a day.

Victims of human trafficking or people with information about this type of criminal activity, should call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888.

HSI and DPS are participating agencies in the TAG. Anonymous tips may be reported at www.Stopwesttexasgangs.org

HSI is the principal investigative arm of DHS and a vital U.S. asset in combatting transnational crime and threats. One of HSI’s top priorities is to protect the public from crimes of victimization, and HSI’s human trafficking and child exploitation investigations programs are central components of this mission set. HSI is recognized as a global leader in these investigative disciplines, and is committed to utilizing its vast authorities, international footprint and strong government and non-government partnerships to identify and rescue child victims, identify and apprehend offenders, prevent human trafficking, prevent transnational child sexual abuse, and help make the internet a safer place for children.
