Europol has today published six images – a t-shirt, a wristband, a bag – that they want as many people to look at as possible. The investigators have exhausted all the investigative leads and is turning to the public for further information.
The images have been cropped out of child sexual abuse footage from cases investigators have yet to solve – some of them months old, some years old – before being digitally enhanced and posted online.
Investigators are hoping that certain details in the images might serve as clues and that members of the public will recognise a detail which could lead to a child being rescued from harm.
Europol’s victim identification specialists take your tips sent in via the Trace An Object platform and work to verify and develop them further. Sometimes, your tips lead the investigators in a definite direction. The information is then sent to the relevant country for further investigation.
