    1. While some crazy person keeps them physically locked up in the basement? Hummm… that doesn’t sound like a great idea to me

    2. @David – But it doesn’t take a genius to understand given the high annual number of missing people of that age. But let’s also assume the case that from the total you remove 70% who have taken other “paths”, the number is still too high, if you then consider that the reference data is annual, you have to calculate that the following year you will be all over again, the new 30% will be added to the old 30%. The number is too high: there is something not right in this “scenario”. But in all cases prayers are useless, or the number of missing people would be decreasing.
      P.s. I don’t live in the USA, I live in Europe

  1. It doesn’t matter how they’re missing, their kids and they’re missing. I don’t like the way they make it sound like it’s OK they just ran away.

    1. I honestly don’t know how it got close to 1000 kids before the media started to pay attention that’s insane bc we hold our selves and country to a high standard I’m just confused on the parenting on how we just now hearing about this I stayed at my friends house for 3 days with no contact with my parents and they had the cops at every friends house

    2. Agreed. These ppl lying their azzes off! Let’s all just stay vigilant and if we see anything about someone who looks suspicious, don’t hesitate to intervene and ask the kid questions about who they are with. We cannot and should not rely solely on authorities to protect our kids.

    3. Yeah, they (ran away) all right. They ran all the way to New Albany and Les Wexlers house. Ohio has always been a hotbed of human trafficking.

  2. Dayton Ohio used to be the predator capital of this nation. My father took our family out of Ohio in the early 70’s. We lived in one of the safest neighborhoods in Dayton. There were rapists, child molesters residing in our midst. The neighborhood would tell others everything for the most part and warn the school kids who to avoid and why. There were the scouts coming in the neighborhood, looking for kids to use in drug and prostitution rings. We looked out for one another. I’m glad my family was transplanted into the Midwest.

  3. It doesn’t matter about the weather, time, day etc. The Fact is that this is alarming and this amount of kids shouldn’t be going missing in this short period of time. With the level of technology we have these days the authorities shouldn’t have no reason why they cant find any leads to why these kids are missing from one area.

    1. Yeah right what kind of excuse was that the detective Force I agree with you that was a horrible horrible response from that Detective

    1. I don’t really know much about this situation all I know is 1000 kids are missing so it either one of two thing. One the government or somebody in a powerful position took these kids and are doing Lord know what to them or. Two people are going missing like the Bible said would happen in the end of the world. I doubt it’s God taking people rn since we still got some Bible prophecies that need to happen to get there but we still are in the end time were close but not that close

  4. Is for the parents to take care of THERE KIDS. there shouldn’t be no excuses. the number are getting higher and people that is apart of the trafficking are not getting caught this world is ending bad and the government is definitely behind all this. please save the minors they do not deserve this. prayer to all families 🙏🤍

  5. Seems like a coverup. The media is trying to say this is not as bad as it appears because “the vast majority” left voluntarily. But my guess is that the majority of missing kids are always majority voluntarily. The question to ask is has the number of suspected abductions increased greatly? If the number of overall missing kids has gone up significantly the answer is likely yes. Another important question to ask is if the % of missing kids attributed to suspected abduction out of the overall missing kids number has increased or not

  6. They’re being trafficked. We aren’t stupid, we know what’s going on. Authorities are downplaying it because a lot of times they are in on it, they work for the elite groups that use these kids. That sheriff had a smirk on his face like this is funny to him, so weird.

    1. Exactly!!! I agree I think that’s what happening too there being trafficked cause that many kids missing?! Someone not jus taking them there being trafficked like didn’t anyone think of that to say there just run away and not care is kinda sounds suspicious to me like there in on it and know something we don’t

    1. Fr I don’t really know much about this situation all I know is 1000 kids are missing and there acting like 1000 kids decided they all wanna run away so it either one of two thing. One the government or somebody in a powerful position took these kids and are doing Lord know what to them or. Two people are going missing like the Bible said would happen in the end of the world. I doubt it’s God taking people rn since we still got some Bible prophecies that need to happen to get there but we still are in the end time were close but not that close

  7. Remember the missing children on the milk cartons…
    We might have to get that going again.
    What’s really odd is it’s a known fact LE is complicit on some level and the way this officer is speaking they’re not trying to hide anymore!
    *Parents keep up with your children the best way you can there’s little to no help if they’re kidnapped*

  8. Please PROTECT your children. Every parent needs to pack up and leave that state asap. Your officials have sold you out.💔

  9. Anyone into true crime knows the police have always been notorious for immediately assuming all missing kids are runaways when they disappear. Even if there’s no issues at home and no prior instances of the kid running away. Look up just about any case of a kid gone missing and you’ll find that in the first crucial hours and days the police usually didn’t do anything because they insisted the kid had just ran away. I know a lot of kids do run away, but the people in this video assuming most of these 1,000 kids are just runaways is exactly what human traffickers depend on.

  10. Curious how they didn’t mention any cross checking reports with parents. Hopefully that is something currently taking place.

    If it was a major case of runaways, parents would be clamoring for information, and, would be included in “news coverage” like this.

  11. One thing i do as a mother of a teen who brings over friends to my hone is question them. I notice parents these days allow their kids to stay at my home for days on end . Always call the parents and sometimes have then take you to the parents home to verify. They know their chikd is at your home.
