(CNN)Authorities have found 39 missing children in Georgia during a two-week effort to rescue endangered minors.

The US Marshals Service Missing Child Unit led the search, dubbed "Operation Not Forgotten." It collaborated with the agency's Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and state and local agencies.

The operation resulted in the rescue of 26 children and safe location of 13 others, US Marshals said in a news release on Thursday.

"The US Marshals Service is fully committed to assisting federal, state, and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children, in addition to their primary fugitive apprehension mission," US Marshals Service Director Donald Washington said in a statement. "The message to missing children and their families is that we will never stop looking for you."

What flummoxes me about this is that they lumped in Parental Kidnappings with actual Sex Traffickers, Pedophiles etc, and likely waited till some PR influenced opportune time to take action.

WTF: If at any time they know someone is holding a child and sexually exploiting them, you send in the fucking calvary right the fuck now! You don't wait till you have some PR worthy event or a Round UP.

I'm probably missing something here buy my Spidey sense is tingling.

What am I missing?

3. So some were runaways, some were parental kidnappings, and some were stranger abductions.

I bet the latter category was the smallest.

7. Meanwhile the Trump administration

is holding thousands of missing children in cages with no plan to ever reunite them with their families.

10. And there

are thousands of abducted refugee children just plain missing, not in cages. Betsy Devos pipeline of children for sale to good christians. How aggressively has this amazing agency been looking for those kids? A little of that good ole GOP Cheney persuasion of Miller and Devos would be a start. All ya need is water and boards.

13. It sounds like they tracked down a bunch of kids who were not

where they expected them to be. And there are a million reasons why they might not be. For example, the parents moved and didn't tell the school or grandma.

And your point - about how you don't wait on your missing kid cases till you have enough to make it worth your while - is proof that this is kind of bogus.

15. And somehow

conspiracy theorists conflated this into "39 kids found in doublewide. Why is this not news?" which was splashed all over Facebook yesterday. Your QAnon at work, I guess.

But look, folks. There were some parental kidnappings in there. There were some runaways. There were undoubtedly some other kinds of trafficking. Sex trafficking isn't the only kind there is, you know. Although on the other hand, some sick parents DO kidnap their kids for that purpose. Witness this horror story which popped up on my news feed today: it was on Channel 10, Knoxville, this morning. A little girl 9 years old was found wandering barefoot and disoriented in a park in Florida. She didn't know where she was but was able to tell police the color of the house she ran away from and two numbers that were part of the address. Officers found her 13 year old sister hiding in a closet. Both girls were taken to the hospital. Their 15 year old brother is still missing. The mother was later arrested. She is suspected of possibly sexually trafficking at least the older girl. She was charged with kidnapping since she had previously lost custody of the children. They have been gone from Memphis for a YEAR. God bless that little girl.

And God bless the U.S. Marshal Service too. They get shit done and don't make a fuss about it. My granddad was a marshal a long time back.
