DETROIT (AP) -- Michigan State Police say 10 teenage girls forced into prostitution have been rescued as part of a national crackdown.

Det. Sgt. Ed Price says the girls were removed from motels and other locations last week in Wayne, Genesee, Oakland and Macomb counties. Eighteen suspected pimps were arrested, although only one in Flint has been charged so far. The investigation is ongoing.

Price says the girls were 16 or 17 years old and were listed as missing or runaways in Michigan. The FBI says 105 kids were rescued across the country.

Price says the girls are being helped by the state Department of Human Services. Some can't return home because of strife in their family.
