A 16 year old honor student is preparing for big life changes, she has an internship lined up with a local hospital - she has an upcoming job interview and by all accounts is leading a normal teenagers life, so when she vanished from her home one night in July the family is left wondering where she went and who she went to meet. But when the leads, tips, and siting's all point to Lashaya being human trafficking, it shocked her family, her community and those following the case.
Human trafficking is a very real thing and each case looks completely different yet they show the same end result, exploiting a person against their will.

Also often times victims of trafficking will be heavily drugged up by their handlers for easy control and multiplication. Over time and as a coping mechanism victims will become addicted.
