A Texas teenager was lured into sex trafficking after meeting her alleged captors on Snapchat, her father says.
John Clark, a Houston-area energy executive, turned detective to rescue his 18-year-old daughter weeks after she went missing in April of this year.
When the high-schooler vanished, Clark hired a private kidnap and rescue firm, consulted experts, and even bought his own 1-800 number to get tips after the sheriff’s office allegedly refused to create one.
“If it was up to what I want, I wouldn’t talk about this,” Clark told The Daily Beast on Monday. “It’s difficult to go through and emotionally draining. But I feel compelled to help other families and keep them from going through what we did.
“I’ve got to do something,” he added.
