Regional Radio Continues its in-depth look at combating Human Trafficking around the Ozarks. Missouri Highway Patrol Sergeant Mike Mitchell says one challenge is getting people to recognize that they are, in fact, victims

Many times this is due to having a relationship with the trafficker prior to being a victim, being a relative or romantic partner, and going down what many would describe as a “slippery slope”

If you or someone you know may be a victim of Human Trafficking, you are strongly encouraged to find help by separating from the trafficker and calling 1-888-373-7888.
