    Flight Attendant Saves Passenger from Human Trafficking

    "Alaska Airlines flight attendant Shelia Fedrick said she noticed the 14 or 15-year-old traveling with a much older, well-dressed man she tried to engage them in conversation. But the man became defensive, she told NBC News."

    "The flight was prior to the 2016 Super Bowl, hosted in the city by the bay, which plays into the expert opinion that sex trafficking spikes during big events."

    "I left a note in one of the bathrooms," Fedrick said. "She wrote back on the note and said 'I need help.'"

    The flight attendant alerted the pilots of the situation and police were waiting in the terminal when they landed, NBC News reports.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    He was pretty creepy and confident that he could take her on a plane and she wouldn't make a scene. Poor child.

    Wow-oh!

    This news is so old, it is almost fake to bring it as news

    The flight was prior to the 2016 Super Bowl....

    prior to the 2016 Super Bowl .... that is soooo right! because it happened in 2011 !



    Shelia Fedrick, 49, was working on a flight from Seattle to San Francisco in 2011 when she noticed a teenage girl, aged around 14, travelling with a well-dressed older man.

    The girl had greasy blonde hair and, according to Fedrick, "looked like she had been through pure hell".

    Fedrick is still in touch with the girl, who is now attending college: "I put my phone number on the note that I left for her and I guess she memorised it, so a few weeks later, she called me," she said.

    if you don't know this is happening then you are either very gullible, living under a rock, or living in a dream world....or a combination of them all

    it happened in the past, its happening today, and it will happen till the end of time
