14 May 2023: En route from Seattle to North Carolina

Francisco De Jesus said he was flying with his 13-year-old daughter from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina and while using the plane’s restroom, flight attendants gave his daughter wings, asked if she was OK, where she was going, and who she was going to meet. When the flight landed in Charlotte, De Jesus said that personnel, including the airport’s head of security, met them after they deplaned. “As we’re deplaning, we’re greeted by several individuals. One of them who introduced himself as the head of security for the Charlotte International Airport,” said De Jesus in a news report. De Jesus and his daughter were led through the terminal and law enforcement eventually explained to him that flight attendants alerted them to signs of human trafficking.
