U.S. Marshals are looking for a couple accused of recruiting young women into the sex trade, and they are asking the public for information that can lead to an arrest.

Twenty-nine-year-old Anthony "Positive" Gray is wanted for failure to appear on a human trafficking charge in Prince George's County and for a prostitution-related charge in the District of Columbia.

Twenty-year-old Amanda "Jazzy" Garren is wanted in D.C. on charges of probation violation for an original prostitution charge.

Both fugitives have been known to recruit young women from all over the country to participate in illegal sexual activities, according to deputy marshals. The duo are suspected of running a prostitution business around the Washington area.

"We need to get these sexual predators off the street to help protect young women; not only in our community, but any community in the country that they may be operating in," said Deputy Justin Bankert.

Gray is listed as 5-feet-6 and 185 pounds. Garren is listed as 5-feet-2 and 130 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of one or both individuals are encouraged to call Bankert or the U.S. Marshals Service at 301-489-1717 or 1-800-336-0102.

Since 2008, The Washington Examiner's "Most Wanted" feature has led directly to the capture or surrender of 52 murderers, armed robbers, kidnappers, sex offenders and drug dealers.

At least nine fugitives were wanted for murder or had previously been convicted of a homicide.

The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 30 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk. The unit has captured more than 33,000 wanted fugitives since its creation in 2004.
