Following the closing of Son of God Orphanage in Haiti in October after six U.S. missionary organizations found that the children were being neglected, abused and trafficked, 45 of the orphans went missing. After weeks of searching, approximately 20 children are still yet to be found, according to reports from the missionaries who uncovered the abuse. Some good news came this week, however, when two children were found -- a young girl, Katia, who had been assumed dead, and another four-year-old child. Government officials and the missionaries are continuing their search efforts and investigation of the situation.
