Cindy McCain, the wife of the late Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, said that she prevented a human trafficking situation, but the claim was later denied by police, reported Arizona family News.

“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.

Phoenix police said that, “There was no evidence of criminal conduct or child endangerment.”

McCain has a diverse family that includes an adopted daughter of color from Bangladesh. She is also an advocate against human trafficking and has partnered with anti-human trafficking organizations.
