UNITED STATES - The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is sharing photographs they want people to study, to see if they can identify the locations where they were shot.
According to the FBI, if people can identify these locations it could lead to the identification and the rescue of child victims of slavery and sex trafficking. We have put some of the photographs in the gallery associated with this article.
FBI officials said there is no clue or piece of information that is too small, and they hope soliciting the public's help can help capture perpetrators.
Several alleged perpetrators or those suspected of being perpetrators have been identified from photographs by the FBI, and they are shared online. The FBI would like people to look at those photos to see if they recognize anyone. The Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP) has put those photographs on this webpage.
