Dushanbe, 01.02.2016. (NIAT «Khovar»). — Over 10,000 unaccompanied migrant children have disappeared in Europe, the EU police agency Europol said on Sunday.

The agency’s chief of staff Brian Donald said the vulnerable children had disappeared from the system after registering with state authorities following their arrival in Europe.

«It’s not unreasonable to say that we’re looking at 10,000-plus children,» Donald said, adding that 5,000 had disappeared in Italy alone.

«Not all of them will be criminally exploited; some might have been passed on to family members. We just don’t know where they are, what they’re doing or whom they are with».
