KUSA - The FBI will share more details Tuesday on the results of Operation Cross Country, the bureau’s yearly effort to rescue children from sex trafficking.

Raids took place in Colorado last Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and happened at truck stops, hotels and street corners.

Authorities believe as many as 2,000 juveniles are exploited in Colorado and Wyoming every year.

Last year’s Operation Cross Country saved 20 children and led to the arrest of 20 traffickers in Colorado.

The FBI will share how many children were rescued this year during a 10 a.m. news conference. We’ll have updates on 9NEWS and 9NEWS.com.
