The moment Shelia Fredrick noticed the girl with greasy blonde hair sitting in the window seat on a flight from Seattle to San Francisco, she knew right away something was wrong, and boy was she right.

Fredrick, 49, said that the girl looked rugged, and like she had gone through quite a lot. She said the girl looked about to be 14-15 years old, but was with an older, well-dressed man. After seeing the two together, bells went off in her head. Something was not right with this picture.

“I left a note in one of the bathrooms. She wrote back on the note and said ‘I need help’ “ said Fredrick.

Shelia then proceeded to go to the pilot, and told him what was going on. And from there, the police were called and were waiting in the terminal when the plane landed, arresting the man.

Because of training from the Airline Ambassadors, where flight crews are trained to spot traffickers, and are then reported to authorities. And due to this training, 2,000 human traffickers were arrested, and identified 400 victims just last year.

We are so thankful for Shelia Fredrick and her quick thinking. Because of her, that girl is now safe and sound, and can be returned to her family. We hope for the best for the girl, and we hope that more flight crews will be trained to spot trafficking on planes.
