I wonder why there's no mention of any arrests.
Because the overwhelming majority of missing kids are runaways, or kids that just don't come home because they've decided they're going to stay at a friend's house.
A while back everybody was all agog at how many missing kids there were from DC, when the reality is that the total number of missing children cases MPD had included kids who spent a weekend partying and never told their parents, ran away to live with somebody else, etc.
The article's headline is willfully misleading and click-baity because the operation is a "missing juvenile sweep." Not a sex trafficking operation. The operation was to locate and recover missing kids and once recovered, identify if any of them had been involved in trafficking. The way the article headline is written gives the impression that the entire operation was to rescue a few hundred kids from sex trafficking.
I just read your "Myth of unchecked police brutality" thread and I'm baffled how that only has 6 flags (7 now).
On topic, I mostly agree with you here but just remember teens that ran away to live with someone else isn't always innocuous. We've had several recent examples of teen girls running away with pedos.
