If you suspect trafficking, your report may be the only one – report the case and continue to advocate for its investigation. Remember, any minor in commercial sex is a victim of human trafficking. When reporting Human Trafficking make sure to say “possible human trafficking”. Getting that on the initial report will help get the case to the correct investigator.
