SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY

V4CR Successful Trafficking Recovery

MISSION BRIEF · APR 13, 2018

On Easter Sunday we were called upon to serve in a new capacity. God delivered our first trafficking victim survivor.

In 2017 during the filming of our upcoming documentary film, our VIPR team members were involved with an operation to locate and affect the extraction of a vulnerable teenager that 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 someone greatly diminishes.

Nevertheless V4CR 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.
