Homeless camp or child trafficking den?

Posted: Updated:

Tucson - A homeless veterans advocacy group stumbled upon an abandoned campsite on the night of Tuesday, May 29.

Veterans on Patrol said they followed a solar light, and in the middle of a heavily wooded area by the Santa Cruz River, they saw the camp.

Dani Ward, a volunteer, told News 4 Tucson she thinks it’s a child trafficking camp.

She pointed out children’s clothing, toys, luggage and strollers.

Ward claims that straps tied to trees were used as restraints.

Also described was an underground bunker where they say children may have been kept.

News 4 Tucson toured the site with Veterans on Patrol and noticed structures in the camp were tied together using similar straps that they described as restraints.

The area used where they claim the children may have been kept could also have been used as shelter to get out of the heat or place to sleep.

Tucson police were at the site taking pictures and said they would turn over their investigation to detectives.
