The state of Georgia is asking for the public's help in locating a missing teen. Reports say that 16-year-old Escreanna Richmond was last seen on September 28 in Columbus, GA near Wilson Apartments on 8th Avenue at around midnight.
Columbus police have been canvasing the area looking for someone, anyone, who say Richmond any time after midnight but, to no avail. To say that it's strange for this young girl to vanish into thin air is an understatement.
The instances of young boys and girls being abducted and taken into the human trafficking system is at an all time high in the United States. The state of Georgia is ranked number four in the country for states with the most trafficking. Only topped by Nevada in first place, Mississippi in second and Florida in third place.
