"On Aurora" I rolled down the window and asked if she was ok. She said she was in pain and everyone was driving by. She said all she needed was a ride. It was crushing, but I quickly understood what she was doing and probably why she was in pain. I asked where she wanted to go. “Aurora,” she replied.

One reason for the recidivism? A profound lack of resources to help the girls. There are only 226 available shelter beds for sex-trafficked kids in the entire country, according to the latest data available. “Home is usually where they’ve fled from and not a good situation to send them back to,” says Special Agent Ben Kinsey, 35, who coordinated OCC7 in Kansas City, Missouri. “And foster care or a detention facility aren’t always good solutions either.” The result: Many teens go back to their traffickers. “Nobody wants to see these kids locked up—nobody,” says Agent Vesci, “but how do you keep them safe? Often there are no good answers.”
