It came to wider public attention when two members of the movement were arrested in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1987 and charged with misdemeanor child abuse of the six children accompanying them, the two men having responded with silence when, in a public park, the police inquired as to their identity and relationship to the children. . The men were Douglas Ammerman and James Michael Holwell, both described as "well-dressed men in suits." They used a van to transport "six scruffy, hungry children" of varying ages. The age range of the children was between age 2 and 11. The men were released six weeks later, with the state of Florida dropping all charges against them. Federal authorities concluded that there was no evidence of criminal activity. The authorities contacted the mothers of the children, who came to Tallahassee and retrieved them.
In November 2019, the FBI declassified nearly 650 pages relating to a group known as The Finders. This cult was alleged to be involved with international child trafficking, Satanic worship and mind control techniques. Eventually irrefutable evidence was gathered by the FBI that the State Department and CIA was at minimum complicit, at maximum directly involved, and conspired to cover up investigation and charges. To this day, not a single person has been convicted of a crime in relation to The Finders. You can now decide for yourself whether conviction is warranted.
