Runaway children exploited by sex trade.

My friends, to see video about this Sky News news, look for the title of this post.

Runaway children exploted by sex trade.

One in six young runaways helped by Barnardo´s has been sexually exploited, the charity has revealed.

It said victims were often groomed by pimps and moved around the country to be sold to clients.

A 2005 report showed as many a 100,000 youngsters under age of 16 go missing every year - equal to one every five minutes.

Although many end up staying with friends or sleeping rough, others end up in far riskier situations, the charity found.

One parent told Sky News her daughter was just 12 when she began to regularly go missing.

She would later return home with mobile phones and lavish gifts.

"When I asked where they´d come from, she´s just say friends", said Sharon, which is not her real name.

The "friend" was actually a pimp. Sharon said her daughter was forcibly hooked on cocaine and cannabis and then groomed into prostitution.

Children who repeatedly go missing are in grave danger of falling victim to those who prey upon them for sexual and financial gain. Barnardo´s chief executive Martin Narey.

She was then driven to different cities for sex.

"I have phone video of her being raped by three men and she looks drugged to me", Sharon said.

"It is something that will live with me for the rest of my life".

Barnardo´s is so concerned it has launched a nationwide campaign to raise £1.3m to fund 21 specialist centres helping victims of sexual exploitation.

The charity is also calling on the Government´s Missing Persons Taskforce to make sure it sets out to clear measures to deal with the problem in a forthcoming action plan.

It also wants the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) to urgently address the link between missing children and sexual exploitation.

"For Barnardo´s staff, identifying those children at risk of sexual exploitation is half the battle, we need to get to these vulnerable children first".

A fundraising appeal voice by Dame Helen Mirren will go out on Easter Sunday.
