A 15-year-old was rescued early Tuesday morning during a traffic stop at the border of Detroit and Warren when MSP stopped a black Dodge Charger for speeding. The driver was a girl who was reported missing in September from Jackson County and was considered a runaway.
As police were bringing her back to their post to arrange a pickup by her guardian, they learned the driver believed she may be pregnant and a victim of sex trafficking.
