Authorities found 39 missing children in Georgia as part of an operation to rescue endangered missing children.

(CNN)Authorities have found 39 missing children in Georgia during a two-week effort to rescue endangered minors.

The US Marshals Service Missing Child Unit led the search, dubbed "Operation Not Forgotten. " It collaborated with the agency's Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and state and local agencies.

The operation resulted in the rescue of 26 children and safe location of 13 others, US Marshals said in a news release on Thursday.

"The US Marshals Service is fully committed to assisting federal, state, and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children, in addition to their primary fugitive apprehension mission," US Marshals Service Director Donald Washington said in a statement.

"The message to missing children and their families is that we will never stop looking for you. "

Every 40 seconds a child goes missing in the United States, accounting for 765,000 missing children a year, according to the FBI.

Since US Marshals partnered with NCMEC in 2005, the agency has recovered more than 1,800 missing children.
