Officials say 141 adults and 84 children were rescued, and 85 people suspected of child sex trafficking were either taken into custody, or identified and are being sought across the country. 37 children who had been listed as missing were also located

Last year more than half of the victims rescued were children, and officials say the crime is more common than most people think.
