Authorities dealing with Europe’s migrant crisis have lost track of around 10,000 unaccompanied children over the last 18 months.

The European Union police agency announcement comes amid fears that organised crime gangs are beginning to exploit the vulnerable youngsters.

Europol Chief of Staff Brian Donald said the figure “would be a conservative estimate across all the countries that are dealing with this migrant crisis”.

The revelation that so many youngsters are unaccounted for is the latest worrying development in the migrant crisis and underscores the risks faced by people fleeing conflict, poverty and persecution in the Middle East, Africa and Asia once they have reached the apparent safety of Europe.

  1. I bet they already started trafficking these children already. The state of the western world is so sad and children are now so unsafe due to a high level of child abuse.
