V4CR Successful Child Recovery

V4CR Successful Child Recovery

Over the last year Veterans For Child Rescue has made incredible strides in establishing new service partnerships and increasing our operational capability.  We’ve quickly built an agile and effective organization that’s lead by our SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU) Founder Craig Sawyer. Much of the work we do deals with fighting back access to our children by child sex predators through coordinated undercover sting operations, cyber investigations and most recently the addition of educational and prevention services.

On Easter Sunday we were called upon to serve in a new capacity. God delivered our first trafficking victim survivor. She was reunited with her family and post traumatic care is underway.

Successful V4CR child trafficking victim recovered and reunited with mother after being missing for a year.

In 2017 during the filming of our upcoming documentary film, Contraland, our VIPR team members were involved with an operation to locate and affect the extraction of a vulnerable teenage child that had gone missing from her home. The child had been reported to the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and after several months it was believed that she was being trafficked for sex; being physically abused and trapped in an unthinkable situation that she could not escape.  Her mother was beside herself but did not stop searching for her daughter. It’s a known fact that after several months missing in cases like this that the chances of locating and extracting a child greatly diminishes.

Nevertheless our teams mobilized and conducted a series of extensive investigations. We followed a number of leads from confidential informants, and conducted surveillance operations in a coordinated attempt to locate the girl. Ultimately we were unable to locate her during the operation; but we never gave up on her.  We stayed in contact with her mother and a number of contacts known to be close to her, and finally in December of 2017 we received a verified confirmation that she was still alive and had been been relocated by her trafficker.

On April 1st, 2018 a break in the case occurred when the girl escaped her captors. A member of our team in the area was immediately dispatched to help support her escape.  

On Easter Sunday we were called upon to serve in a new capacity. God delivered our first trafficking victim survivor. She was reunited with her family and post traumatic care is underway.

As a result of this successful child recovery we’re pleased to announce an expansion to our service offerings. We’ve set up an Aftercare and Recovery Fund to facilitate the many aspects that she and other rescued children will need to begin her healing process.

Breaking: FOSTA Online Anti Sex Trafficking Bill Signed by President Trump

We’re pleased to share that sex crime advocates, law enforcement and NGOs have prevailed and scored a major victory in the fight to end the exploitation of children with the passage of the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA).  President Donald Trump yesterday signed the bill co-authored by Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman that establishes fines and prison terms for operators of websites that knowingly engage in online sex trafficking. This bill was aimed at services that sites such as Backpage, Reddit, Craigslist and hundreds of smaller sites offered users that often contributed to sex crimes. Veterans For Child Rescue and the elite VIPR Teams have operated sting operations in coordination with law enforcement agencies around the country using these sites and apps. Among the most prolific sites for catching online child predators for law enforcement and NGOs was Backpage.

Breaking: FOSTA Online Anti Sex Trafficking Bill Signed by President Trump
Addressing the victims present at the ceremony, Trump said, “I’m signing this bill in your honor ... You have endured what no person on earth should have to endure and we are going to do everything in our power to make sure that traffickers are brought to a swift and firm justice.”

The New York Post (4/11, Fonrouge) reports that Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (or FOSTA) “paves the way for law enforcement to crack down on websites that facilitate sex trafficking, such as Backpage, Craigslist and other platforms where victims of human trafficking are bought and sold.” The Post adds that “previously, websites were protected by the Communications Decency Act, which shielded them from being held responsible for the content other users may post to their domain.”

Great article.

Thank you for all you do, I will hopefully be making a donation soon. God bless

Thanks to all involved

I noticed that the New York Post said nothing about the predatory nature that YouTube so obviously promotes. That article, as far as the clip that you’ve published, is nothing but a warning to criminals involved in these activites, NOT a news piece to inform law-abiding citizens that something is being done about the problem. Like I said, I haven’t read the entire article, but…..
The owners of the New York Post are very involved in these criminal practices, and because I’m aware of that, I look at their articles with much more critical thinking than most would.

Vets4childrescue is doing a fantastic job, and I’m extremely grateful to them for being willing to take on such a monumental task. It’s not easy to deal with such evil on a daily basis, and maintain one’s sanity, as all people involved in exposing this black world are extremely aware of, but to see the evil with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears – not through a camera, is much more difficult to live with. Truly, God stands solidly with them, as do I.

“One man with courage makes a majority” Andrew Jackson.

My husband recently passed away as a result of cancer caused by Agent Orange exposure while in Viet Nam. He really, really wanted to join the team of vets involved in rescuing the children from this horrible abuse. He was unable to do so due to his cancer. Bottomline, he discovered you too late.

This is a wonderful organization! Thank You!! for all that you do!

If there are any of you vets debating whether to become involved, please do so. I can’t imagine a better way to serve your country than to fight this great evil!!!!

We proudly support V4CR!

Thank you for helping the children and ridding the world of this horrendous evil.
I pray daily for these children and for our heroic, manly, wonderful Vets.
We are a military family and pray for you.
