Kelly Humphries was just eight years old when her Uncle Robert sexually abused her. When she was about 12 her mother asked if he had ever touched her. Her response was no.”It was an opportunity for a conversation and finally the pieces fell into place,” Ms Humphries said, only realising then what her uncle was doing was wrong.
Last year, authorities received more than 20 million reports flagging online child sexual exploitation across the world. In Australia, a team of experts is sifting through the horrific footage – searching for clues that will help them track down predators and ultimately rescue children from their abusers. Their work is now the subject of a documentary, The Children in the Pictures. Ella Archibald-Binge and Alex McDonald report – and a warning, this story contains distressing content.
Thank you Australian Federal Police, The Carly Ryan Foundation Inc., Daniel Morcombe Foundation, and Kelly Humphries for making this day truly remarkable.
