“I came in from a trip I’d been on and I spotted—it looked odd—it was a woman of a different ethnicity than the child, this little toddler she had, and something didn’t click with me,” she told KTAR Mac & Gaydos radio show. “I went over to the police and told them what I saw, and they went over and questioned her, and, by God, she was trafficking that kid,” she said.
She also tweeted about the event.
At Phoenix Sky Harbor, I reported an incident that I thought was trafficking. I commend the police officers for their diligence. I apologize if anything else I have said on this matter distracts from “if you see something, say something”
