GENESEE CO., Mich. (WNEM) – Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson announced Friday the Genesee Human Suppression Strike Team rescued 18 of the 30 children on their most vulnerable list.
The GHOST rescue operation took place on June 30.
Children on their most vulnerable list are classified as children who pass through probate courts and Child Protective Services.
The GHOST team said they will continue to investigate and look for the other 12 children featured on the list.
“Predators look for vulnerable children that nobody thinks about,” Swanson said.
Children placed on the most vulnerable list are classified as potential victims.
One of the rescued children, 14, was taken to Voices for Children for a forensic interview. According to GHOST, the 14-year-old boy was physically abused.
This case is being assigned to CPS for a parental plan.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Michigan State Police, Children’s Voices and the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the rescue.
