This is true in Vegas, and everywhere else. Kids with uninvolved parents make for easy prey for pedophiles, pimps, etc. Kids we write off as “trouble” may just be user the influence of traffickers.
But how do you spot a child sex trafficking victim? Carter says you just have to look around you.
“Thirteen or 14 years old with tattoos and you can tell that they’re under the influence and they stay out at all different times of the night,” said Carter.
Carter’s advice to parents: “Be more active in your children’s lives … pay attention to who they hang around with.”
