June 2023 | During the fifth annual National Child Protection Task Force conference, a call came in that a young girl was missing.

The NCPTF worked alongside volunteer investigators and conference attendees to provide key information that resulted in the recovery of two survivors and discovery of a third exploited child. The girls were recovered safely in under 24 hours and the suspected trafficker was arrested.
