Airline employee stops possible human trafficking scheme

American Airlines 737

American Airlines says its agent's training saved the lives of two teenage girls

'Between the two of them, they had a bunch of small bags. They kept looking at one another in a manner that seemed anxious and fearful and Miracle said her gut feeling told her something was awry.

An American Airlines employee at Sacramento International Airport saved the lives of two teenage girls who were about to be slaves. "It just doesn't feel right to me.' It just did not feel right". Denise immediately alerted the Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies, who traced the payment of the girls' tickets to a fraudulent credit card.

Drey had offered to fly the girls to NY for the weekend and pay them $2,000 to model and be in music videos. But in times past, American Airlines could certainly live up to part of that slogan. The girls told the deputies they were flying to NY to meet a man named Drey who had contacted them through Instagram.

The police also found out that the girls had not informed their parents about their weekend getaway.

When Deputy Sanderson informed the teens that their tickets had no return flights, he said they became defensive before ultimately accepting what could have happened to them. "In my opinion, what was going to happen was they were going to go back to NY and become victims of sex trafficking". "And they said 'I wouldn't let anything happen that I didn't want to.' And I said, 'Well, probably you wouldn't have a choice in the matter'".

Rather astonishingly, Eubank Jr after the fight mentioned he thought he won the fight. "It's nice to get that justification". A cut is a cut but I kept going, that is what a warrior does. "He's a good fighter but he didn't show it".

"She probably really was their miracle that day whether they want to believe it or not", he added.

Most likely Drey did not use his own photos and would not likely be prosecuted outside California, but thanks to the awareness of the American Airlines agent, the girls were headed home with their parents from the airport and not headed to NY on a flight.

"I'm very, very thankful Ms. Miracle with American Airlines was able to use her intuition and concern and actually say something", Sanderson said.

Authorities say they located "Drey" on social media, but after briefly making contact with him, all of his accounts went dark. "Just a few minutes after our contact with him, he erased all of his profiles on social media", Sanderson said. "Without her, I wouldn't have been called and we wouldn't have intervened with these girls". There is no word on whether the human trafficking suspect has been caught, or what charges he may face.
