The Department of Justice announced Friday U.S. Marshals have recovered 27 missing children through a rescue operation in Virginia.
"Operation Find Our Children"—a five-day undertaking—was the latest in a string of initiatives led by the U.S. Marshals Service to reunite endangered and missing children across the country with their parents and legal guardians.
According to a report from Fox News, more than 60 investigators were involved with a team helmed by U.S. Marshals from the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia.
Nick E. Proffitt, who works for the Eastern District, said in a statement: "I can think of no more critical or satisfying mission for a law enforcement officer than rescuing an endangered child."
"This operation brought together a formidable team that was, and is, determined to come to the aid of our youth and bring to justice those among us that choose to prey on these vulnerable children," he explained.
Proffitt said he is "deeply humbled and highly honored" that his team in the U.S. Marshals Service was able to play a critical role in the effort to rescue children.
"We want the missing children across this great nation to know the U.S. Marshals Service will never stop looking for you," he added. "We will find you."
In September, Charisma News also reported on a similar operation in Ohio called "Operation Safety Net."
