Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Teen Girl Sex Trafficked From Bathroom Break at Maverick’s Game With Dad

A 15-year-old girl has a date night with her Dad attending a Mavericks game. She takes a bathroom break near half-time and never returns.

The teen’s father alerts security and police that his daughter had gone missing, and is told that authorities cant help because state law requires law enforcement to classify missing juveniles as runaways unless there is evidence that they are missing involuntarily, such as by kidnapping.

The teen’s parents ask the Texas Counter-Trafficking Initiative for help in locating the teen, and within hours, the group finds explicit images of the girl on a prostitution website in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A review of video surveillance shows the girl leaving the arena with two men.

The teen was missing for 11 days but was ultimately rescued from an Extended Stay America  200 miles away from her home.
