Mother Breaks Up Prostitution Ring After Seeing Daughter In Online Ad

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON, TX- A Houston mother goes up against alleged criminals and shuts down an area prostitution ring.

A mother, whose 16 year old daughter disappeared, was in for what may've been the shock of her life.

The mom was on-line and actually saw an ad for an escort service and the woman in the prostitution ad wasn't a woman at all.

It was her missing daughter.

The mother contacted the Houston police department.

HPD ran a sting and uncovered an alleged prostitution ring.

Another shocker?

Two youngsters, 18 year old Alejandro Flores and 20-year old Rebeca Estrada, are now under arrest for allegedly running the prostitution ring.

Lakiesha McCrorey a social worker with YMCA International Services says there was a time we had to teach our kids about stranger danger but now she says it isn't unusual for extremely young people to run crime rings and recruit those closest to them.

"They'll go to family members. They'll go to friends. They'll go to sisters and brothers. That's how the recruitment goes. That's how peer recruitment goes," McCrorey explained.

According to the court hearing the missing 16 year old says she had to pay Estrada and Flores half of what she made while prostituting.

The teen who, it turns out ran away, also tells officers it was Estrada who took the pictures of her for that prostitution ad.

That degrading advertisement is what saved the 16 year old when her mom miraculously saw her own daughter propositioning sex for money.

"This is happening everywhere, from the inner city to the rural areas to the suburbs," said McCrorey.
