Although there is no official data on human trafficking related to the disappearance of children and adolescents, experts say g1 State that none of the victims actually disappeared. They are always somewhere and the general idea is to feed them this illegal market.
For public safety expert and sociologist, Rodriguez Snyder de Amorim Suza, the scenario presents a variety of extremely complex challenges across the country.

Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation. According to him, this social situation grows on the edge of society because the subject is not talked about.
“Domestic violence is still rarely discussed in public and is silenced by family members. It is a fact that the vast majority of child abuse in the home is perpetrated by relatives or acquaintances,” he said.
In addition, another provocative factor in this situation is due to the parents or guardians dealing with the situation. According to Rodriguez, no one is ready to see their son lost. However, there are help systems that can help you cope with this moment of pain and frustration.
“Usually, parents do not know how to deal with the disappearance of their son or daughter. Public campaigns that address the issue in various contexts are rare or non-existent. Lack of information on how to approach the issue is still a matter of concern and little comment,” he said. Said.
Judge and Representative of the State Committee for the Prevention and Prevention of Trafficking in Persons (CETRAP), Renata do Carmo Everesto Pereira, The main targets of trafficking are children and adolescents within the state and those who are going through it Socio-economic difficulties.
“The country’s economic situation and vulnerability have led to an increase in the number of trafficked people, especially in Mato Grosso.

For Renata, the challenge within the state is being closely monitored and carefully monitored by Cetrap.
“This number is higher in the interior and it is still being observed. Everything related to vulnerability and economic situation. Mainly to the adolescents with the promise of earning money and the illusion of improving their financial condition. Internally it is more for their financial reasons. The situation”.
According to him, the best way to prevent these crimes is through prevention, education and publicity in schools on how to make employers and potential criminals aware. “The best way is to prevent,” he said.
