Former special agent for Homeland Security goes from hunting terrorists to saving enslaved children

BEIJING, CHINA - MARCH 31: (CHINA OUT) Playing cards showing details of missing children are displayed on March 31, 2007 in Beijing, China. The cards showing photographs and information of 27 missing children were created by Shen Hao, the founder of missing persons website, 'www.xrqs.com'. Shen Hao plans to hand out them free to the public security departments, civil affairs bureaus and residents, in areas notorious for child trafficking. 38-year-old Shen, a resident in Chuzhou of central China's Anhui Province, set up the website in 2001 and later founded a network of volunteers dedicated to finding missing people. Shen is regarded as one of the "Top Ten Volunteers in Anhui Province" for his efforts in tracing missing people, according to state media. (Photo by China Photos/Getty Images)
