Estimated 500,000 predators have become daily threat to children on the internet, new data shows

The arrest of a man in Volusia County after allegedly traveling to meet a 12-year-old girl for sex is shedding light on a growing threat to kids.

“40 percent of kids say they have been contacted by somebody they don’t know,” said Justin D’Arienzo, a forensic psychologist.

Newly released 2023 crime data suggests that every day, someone’s child is approached online by someone looking to lure them for sexual purposes.

And unfortunately, most parents are not even aware of it happening.
