Mother fears missing Henry County teen lured into sex trafficking ring

- Tina Everett hasn't seen her daughter Kristina since November 28, 2016—that the night her 16-year-old slipped out of the Everett's Henry County home. Henry County Police suspect the teenager left on her own with someone who was waiting for her.

“She called that night and said she was ok and safe, then she called a couple of days later and she sounded really sick,” Everett said.

Another phone call, a few days later was even more disturbing for the mother.

“She told me she didn't know where she was and that the windows blocked out and the door was locked. I said tell them you want to go home and she said they wouldn’t let her go and that was the end of the conversation,” Everett told FOX 5.

Henry County Police tracked Kristina's phone to two different metro Atlanta motels, but they haven't been able to locate the girl. Her mother fears the teen has been lured into some sort of sex trafficking ring. Henry County Police Captain Joey Smith told FOX 5 his investigators are working with state and federal law enforcement agencies to determine if that’s true.

“We can't really confirm that yet, but it is absolutely possible. There are concerns she might be with individuals doing something a 16 year old should not be doing, so we hope she’ll either come home safely or someone will tell us where we can find her so we can help her,” said Captain Smith.

“It’s just hard not knowing where she is for so long—especially so close to the holidays. Someone’s got to know something. Someone’s got to tell us something. This hurts,” the mother said with tears in her eyes.
