An “America’s Most Wanted” episode featuring a child sex-trafficking sting in Vancouver will air June 1, a TV show producer said Thursday.

Producers and cameramen with the long-running TV show were in Vancouver on May 2 and joined the Vancouver Police Department for a sting called “Operation Rescue and Restore” to apprehend pimps who traffic underage girls. No arrests were made, though investigators did take into protective custody a 5-year-old girl belonging to a prostitute.

A longtime Saturday night fixture on the Fox channel, the show now airs on Friday nights on the Lifetime cable channel. The special on human trafficking will feature efforts by several law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.
