The Netherlands: more than 1,600 asylum seekers children are missing – Over the past four years and half, more than 1,600 asylum seekers children have run away from reception locations. The children have left ‘with unknown destination’ and it is not clear where they are staying now. The group of children that disappears is probably even larger. 

The Aliens Police Rotterdam regularly finds foreign minor not accompanied in the city. According to some social workers, some of these children are picked up by criminals from the asylum seekers’ center to steal on command or are now in the hands of organized crime organizations.
