Teen Missing for 3 Years, May Be Sex Trafficked

The FBI has provided an age progression image of a Texas teen who disappeared three years ago from her home in Spring.

CrimeOnline previously reported that Kristen Galven’s mother last saw her daughter on January 1, 2020, when the then-15-year-old left to spend the winter with her grandmother.

Galven’s mother, Robyn Cory, told KHOU that her daughter had gone missing once before — in 2021, when she left with her boyfriend and became a victim of sex trafficking.

She disappeared again just a month later. Cory fears the same has happened again.

“Kristen was not the same child when we recovered her,” Cory said.

“We have a problem. And you know, to find that it’s not only my daughter missing and being sold, Houston, we have a problem.”

Cory says she hopes the FBI’s new image will help bring her daughter back home.

“I can only hope that the age progression is what my baby looks like. Because I still see that 15-year-old face and voice, a child,” she said. “And this is a child missing. And I hope the nation sees her.”

Cory has also set up a Facebook group and Youtube channel in an effort to bring Galvan home.
