Two anti-human trafficking organizations have partnered together to help raise awareness on behalf of a few young women who have gone missing and who had created modeling profiles on the networking site ModelMayhem.com.
The National Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation (NWCAVE)and All We Want Is Love organization announced their partnership last week and are now calling for a federal investigation, calling the website “a common denominator” and “a red flag” in the disappearances.
Raven Cassidy Furlong of Denver, 17, is the latest Colorado teen to go missing who had a modeling profile with the site. Last Tuesday, Raven’s stepmother received an unnervingly short phone call the missing teen.
“Raven said she was safe, but that she was calling from someone else’s phone and couldn’t stay on the line and had to go,” Lin Furlong told People Magazine. “I was relieved to hear her voice, but I’m terrified for her. She sounded scared and not like herself at all.”
Missing 19-year-old Kara Nichols of Colorado Springs also had joined Model Mayhem and was last seen Oct. 9 before travelling to Denver for a modeling job.
“What causes us concern is that it is really uncharacteristic of her not to be in contact with her friends and family,” Sgt. Joe Roybal told The Huffington Post in November.
