American Airlines agent saves 2 teenage girls from human trafficking scheme

In addition to having no forms of identification, they had first-class tickets to New York City that had been bought with a fraudulent credit card.

American Airlines customer service agent Denice Miracle knew something was awry when two girls, ages 17 and 15, came to her ticket counter one Thursday afternoon last August.

'Between the two of them, they had a bunch of small bags. "And then they were texting someone on the phone, and that person was giving them answers", Miracle said. "This just doesn't feel right to me, '" Miracle told CNN.

At first, the girls didn't believe they had been tricked into a trafficking situation.

Miracle noticed the ticket from Sacramento to NY was purchased online and the credit card had a different name. Deputies said the girls were shocked when they learned the tickets were only for one-way flights.

Shigeta, who has kept an extremely low profile, did not attend the court's sessions and had a lawyer represent him. Shigeta had asked the court to grant him sole custody and produced evidence to support his financial credentials.

Drey offered to fly both girls to NY over a weekend and to pay each $2,000 for modeling and appearing in music videos.

The girls returned home safely after deputies called their parents to tell them about the apparent attempt of human trafficking.

"When I told them that they didn't have a flight home, that's when it kind of sunk in that maybe I was actually telling the truth", Sanderson said.

"They were somewhat flippant about - "No, that can't be true" - and I said, 'No, the airline says you have a one-way ticket, and in my belief, you're going back there not to do the things that you think you were going to be doing.' And they said, 'I wouldn't let anything happen that I didn't want.' And I said, 'Well, you probably wouldn't have a choice in the matter, '" Deputy Sanderson said.

"I fully believe she probably prevented these girls from becoming victims".

Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to the PC after the console release
EA and Criterion announced today via the PlayStation Blog that the beloved PS3 racer is getting remastered for the PS4. It featured a unique open world design in Paradise City, where every street corner held a race or event.

Thanks to the intervention of an American Airlines employee, two teenage girls have been saved from nearly falling victim to a human trafficking plot.

"I'm proud of Denice and how she put her training into action to save these children", said Aleka Turner, American Airlines' Sacramento International Airport general manger, in the release.

"I told the supervisor, 'I'm going to call the sheriff".

The deputies said they made contact with "Drey" on social media but he quickly deleted all of his accounts soon after. It's unlikely the man will be prosecuted over the incident. The alleged perpetrator obviously used the power of emotion to befriend these girls and gain their trust, to the point that they were willing to lie to their parents and board a plane heading thousands of miles away.
