11 runaway children found in two months by U.S. Marshals Service's New Orleans office

Eleven missing or endangered runaways were found in August and September by the U.S. Marshals Service's New Orleans office. Among them were a 16-year-old boy who authorities suspect was involved with guns and New Orleans street gang activity and a 13-year-old girl who was found in Nashville, Tennessee.
The agency said several arrests were made during the two-month effort but did not specify how many. One involved a man accused of aggravated statutory rape, the Marshals Service said.
Between Oct. 1, 2019, and the latest operation, the New Orleans office of the Marshals Service said deputies found nine other missing children. Among them:
  • Two brothers, ages 6 and 9, in New Orleans East in March. Their mother was arrested, accused of killing an 11-year-old son in Laurel, Mississippi. 
  • A missing pregnant teen. Her boyfriend, an escapee from the Orleans Parish Juvenile Justice Center, was arrested.
A child in Lafourche Parish. In conjunction with the child's rescue, the Marshals Service said authorities confiscated a stolen AR-15 and drugs.
