More than thirty minors have been rescued from trafficking in the St. Louis area to date this year…

According to the FBI, a national sting recently saved 149 children.  In spite of those figures, local agencies who assist victims and survivors say they are short on resources.   A Human Trafficking Task Force heard concerns from a dozen people during a hearing last week.  Christine McDonald, an author and advocate, explained:  “How did she get there?
