Search efforts continue for Kristen Galvan, a missing Texas teen who hasn’t been seen in months.
As CrimeOnline reported, Galvan’s mother, Robyn, previously told The Chron that she last saw her daughter on January 1, 2020, as the teen left to visit her grandmother for winter. Since then, there have been few leads and no information that has led to Galvan’s whereabouts.
“She took off,” Bennett said. “My mom called me immediately when she realized Kristen was gone.”
Bennett told NBC 6 that new friends lured her daughter out of the residence.
“Before Kristen was taken one year, three months, and 22 days ago, she was a sweet teenager,” Robyn 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.”
Bennett told Fox News earlier this year that this isn’t the first time her daughter vanished. She previously left with her boyfriend, Bennet said, and during that time was pushed into sex trafficking.
“She had run away with her boyfriend,” she said. “She was gone for a week and a half. I got a phone call from Houston police and they had picked her up.”
“I followed their accounts. I learn about their gangs, and this deep dark world of sex trafficking. Child sex trafficking.”
According to the FBI, the teen’s life may be in danger.
“Because Kristen is a possible victim of human trafficking, this means her life could be in danger,” said FBI Special Agent Bethany Morris.
Kristen is a white female who stands 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs around 135 pounds. She has blonde hair and hazel eyes.
Anyone with any information on the teen’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800.
