    WA - Father tracks down missing daughter through backpage.com

    Fife police said a Tacoma man searching for his missing 15-year-old daughter tracked her down by spotting a posting on the website Backpage.com advertising prostitution.

    Lt. Tom Thompson said the man spotted the ad and suspected the girl in the post might be his daughter. Thompson said the man asked a friend to call the number and make an appointment to meet with the girl.

    When the friend arrived, he was met by two men, the missing girl and another missing 15-year-old girl from University Place. The friend told the suspects he needed to go to an ATM for cash, but instead he notified the father that his daughter was in the room, Thompson said.

    The father called 911 and Fife police responded and arrested the two men on charges of promoting the sexual abuse of a minor.

    Interestingly, both girls have been booked into Juvenile detention for prostitution at this point.

    That is NOT going to help anyone! Ridiculous!
    I hope the girls get support and counselling for what they have gone through, and those guys who were soliciting them get the book thrown at them - those girls were 15 years old.
    I hope the dad is OK, seeing that he set this up to get his daughter back - but now authorities have her and the other girl in detention - I'm sure the dad would prefer his daughter to be at home.
    I hope this all turns out well in the end.

    I don't know know the laws of that State - will these girls be charged with anything?

    I'm sorry for what he went through. That had to be extremely painful to be going through that site, all the while worrying about your girl. Then to find her there. So very painful.

    He is a good Dad though. He did it. He not only did it, he managed to get it set up so that his daughter was recovered safely.

    I hope that someday this girl understands just how much her father loves her, and how much pain he was willing to go through for her.

    Kudos to the Dad and to the man who assisted him in recovering the daughter and the other girl too!
    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?

    Won't it? I haven't looked into this story so I still have a lot of questions. Were the girls kidnapped, or did they run away? If they ran away, then that is a criminal offense. Were they made to turn to prostitution or did they do it voluntarily for some reason? (For the money, to please the guy or similar reasons?) If it was voluntary, then they need to learn there are consequences. That if they choose this life, this is what they have to look forward to. Right now they have a chance to turn their life around, this can be a wakeup call for them before they get in too deep.

    IMO it certainly might help. Especially if these girls were at risk of running BACK to that life.

    This will be a 'detox' period of sorts. Help them get back to normal and away from the filth they were caught up with.

    It also names the two grown men arrested. One definately the pimp.

    The 15 year old said she would rather go to jail than go home. Most likely why they locked her up.

    How sad is this world?

    Well, while she's in juvenile detention there's time to sort out why she would rather go there than home with her stepdad, and why she ran away into a life of prostitution.

    Sounds complicated. But that's what juvenile detention is for - is to rehabilitate and keep kids safe. In theory anyway.
