    VA - Teen believed to be victim of Human Trafficking

    New law to help find victims of human trafficking (link)
    RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
    A Virginia teen, missing since last Saturday, is now believed to be involved in human trafficking.

    Authorities believe 16-year-old Jennifer Romero has traveled from Augusta County to Arlington and throughout northern Virginia.

    She was originally reported as a runaway, that's until police found out she was lured into taking off with a man.

    Now as authorities try to save this girl, a new law, just signed off by Governor Bob McDonnell gives police new hope in cracking down on human trafficking crimes.

    I hope other states are watching this with an idea of implementing something similar.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Missing Teen Has Been Found ( link )

    AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. --We have more on the search for 16 year old Jennifer Carolina Romero.

    She's the Augusta County teen who has been missing for nine days.

    Jennifer Romero's stepfather, Ronald Flores, said he believes she called a family member for about thirty seconds to say that she is fine.

    She didn't say where she was but that phone call has made things a little easier for them.

    A call from a restricted number had someone who sounded like Jennifer saying to tell her mother she was okay.

    The call was to someone other than her parents but they still say it's good news.
