Only on AP: Europe Minors
'Only on AP' highlights AP investigations, in-depth features and character-driven stories that take a different angle on the news.

* Europe / Minors / Story #4036007

Across Europe there is a growing shadow population of thousands of under-age migrants who are living on their own, without families or help from authorities.

They hide silently and in plain sight, rarely noticed in the crowd.

Like adult migrants, minors are flooding into Europe for both security and economic reasons.

The question is where they end up, with the biggest danger being that they will fall into crime, trafficking or illegal labour.

AP interviewed more than two dozen minors, who described what they had been through, and how they now lived.
