Duson Police has arrested 27 year old man, who is suspected of human trafficking as at the moment of his arrest there was 16-year old from University City, Missouri. Authorities believe the teen was a victim of human trafficking.

The teen was found at the Super 8 motel off interstate 10 in Duson. “He was taken from St. Louis, across the country, to California, North Carolina, and they ended up here, in Duson Louisiana,” said Lt. James Hodges with Broussard Police

Duson Police say the unidentified 16-year-old black victim, was with a 27-year-old black male who is also a truck driver… they met on Tinder.

The boy had been reported missing since July 21 by his mother in University City, Missouri.

“They ended up here in Duson Louisiana because the person who had taken the juvenile was tired and needed to get some rest. at that time the juvenile found fit to go down to the front counter and ask that they call 9-1-1 for police assistance,” Hodges added.

When officers arrived, Duson police say the boy was traumatized but was transported to a local hospital, to be treated for what appeared to be human bites. The 27-year-old alleged trafficker was questioned by Duson police Thursday evening but was later released, because they couldn’t confirm whether or not the human trafficking crime occurred in Louisiana.



Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar worldwide criminal industry. Trafficking involves denying a person their freedom and benefiting from their exploitation. Traffickers use force, fraud or coercion when exploiting their victims.

The many forms of trafficking fall into two primary categories: forced labor and sexual exploitation. Sexually exploited victims are the largest percentage across the different forms of trafficking. The evolution of technology has created a non-traditional arena for traffickers to sexually exploit victims.

 According to the national human trafficking hotline, in 2017, 8,759 cases of human trafficking were reported to the hotline, representing over 10,000 individual victims, almost 5,000 potential traffickers. This was a 13 percent increase in cases compared to 2016.

Working in collaboration with law enforcement, government, non-governmental and private organizations, the Blue Campaign strives to protect the basic right of freedom and to bring those who exploit human lives to justice.
