Human trafficking and exploitation is a huge issue in the United States. In 2016 the National Center on Missing and Exploited Children received 8.2 million reports, while the National Human Trafficking Hotline fielded 7,621 cases in the same year. 

One of those people that became a victim of trafficking was a 16-year old girl who was abducted along with a friend while riding her bike one afternoon. Her parents, identified by PEOPLE as Maureen and David, contacted Saved In America (SIAM) after police insisted on treating the case as a runaway.
