Thanks to the U.S. Marshals, in an effort named "Operation Not Forgotten," 39 children who were reported missing have been found.
The mission took place in Georgia over two-week span in August. According to CBS News, as a result of the operation nine people were arrested with a total of 26 warrants between them. They also face additional charges regarding parental kidnapping, registered sex offender violations, sex trafficking, drugs and possession of weapons. As stated in a press release by the U.S. Marshals, "These missing children were considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area, based on indications of high-risk factors such as victimization of child sex trafficking, child exploitation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and medical or mental health conditions."
However, a number of conspiracy theorists couldn't help themselves and began claiming "Operation Not Forgotten" was actually connected to the larger, completely baseless accusations floated by fans of the so-called QAnon movement. It was so baseless and potentially harmful that the U.S Marshals had to weigh in and debunk this maliciously ignorant component to an otherwise powerfully uplifting story.
