Since October of 2020, the conclusion of Operation Safety Net, the USMS and its law enforcement partners have located and recovered thirty-five missing or endangered children across Northern Ohio. The USMS continues this focus on the investigation and recovery of missing or endangered children across Northern Ohio and beyond.
