    WA - Kelsey Emily Collins, 18, Everett, 9 May 2009



    <snip>

    Collins has been living with her mother in the 1200 block of 100th Street SW. She didn't take clothes or other items to suggest she'd be gone for a long time, Goetz said. Collins also didn't call her mom on Mother's Day and has had no contact with her family.

    ===================

    <snip>
    Kelsey started living a double life: She was a special-education student at Mariner High School in Everett, and she walked the streets as "Lady Dollars."

    Within months, she was picked up by Portland police as she climbed out of a car in an area known for prostitution. She was tired, ready to talk, and told a detective that her new pimp, a 36-year-old man whom she had known for less than a week, had brought her to Portland.

    At the detective's urging, Kelsey eventually told her story to a federal grand jury, but she vanished — without a trace — weeks after testifying.

    Her family now can't stop wondering if there's a connection.

    AMW Fights Child Sex Trafficking With Filmmaker Libby Spears 1/27/2011

    In her documentary, “Playground”, U.S. filmmaker Libby Spears offers a disturbing look inside one of the world’s most profitable, and most degrading industries – sex trafficking. After her initial research in Cambodia and the Philippines, Libby altered her primary country of focus once she learned one of the world’s biggest offenders of commercial sexual exploitation is the United States. An alarming number of American children – more than 300,000 – have been forced into the sex industry.
    ..................
    Tune in on Saturday, Jan. 29, 2011, on FOX to watch the conclusion of Libby’s in-depth look at child prostitution in Portland, Ore., and see if you have a crucial tip to help find Kelsey Collins.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    As she would later testify to a federal grand jury, a man 20 years older than her drove Kelsey 170 miles down Interstate 5 from Seattle to Portland's 82nd Ave.

    There amidst the strip's seedy motels and lingerie stores where customers can buy backroom lap dances and more, the plan was simple: sell her to as many men as possible.

    After that first night in January 2008 when she made about $1,000, all of which she later told investigators went to her pimp, Kelsey went right back to work as a prostitute.

    What a sad story - and probably much more common than we realize.

    I don't think Kelsey will be going home.

    Question Possible matches for Kelsey

    I just wanted to share these possible matches to this case. Due to the issues involving human trafficking and moving of the victims, often out of state, I wanted to include these cases which have DNA or dental records in file. Also to bump the post.
