COPS fear a missing teen is being sex trafficked after being lured out of her grandma’s home in Texas last year.
Kristen Galvan, 17, vanished from Spring on January 2, 2020 and police now have reason to believe she is a victim of human trafficking.
Members of the public have reported seeing a photo of Kristen on websites known for prostitution, CBS Austin reports.
And the FBI now believe her life is in imminent danger.
Kristen’s mom, Robyn Bennett, said her daughter was potentially “sold into the dark world of child sex trafficking” when she was 15.
“Before Kristen was taken one year, three months and 22 days ago, she was a sweet teenager,” Bennett said.
“She was a good student, in JROTC and on the drill team. She lightened any room she entered.
“It’s scary to think that Kristen was lured out of our home by new friendships full of empty promises and sold into the dark world of child sex trafficking.”
‘HELP FIND MY BABY GIRL’
Bennett’s heartbroken mom added: “Someone knows something. Please help me find my baby girl Kristen.”
Kristen is 5 foot, 6 inches tall, 135 pounds and she has blonde hair and hazel eyes.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the FBI, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office believe Kristen is being trafficked in Texas.
FBI Special Agent Bethany Morris said: “Because Kristen is a possible victim of human trafficking, this means her life could be in danger.
