A missing Massachusetts teen may be in danger of sex trafficking, police say.
Walpole police issued a missing person bulletin Saturday night for 17-year-old Jennifer Rosa, an endangered runaway.
Rosa was last seen on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 1:25 p.m. when she walked away from the Bi-County Collaborative School in Walpole. She reportedly left school and got into a white sedan with a man who goes by the name "Isaiah."
Based on past statements that Rosa has made, police say she may be at risk for sex trafficking as a result of her relationship with "Isaiah."
Rosa is described as 5'3" tall and 160 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair with auburn highlights, though she may have dyed it black recently.
Rosa is currently under the care and custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. She is known to run away frequently to the Providence area, police say.
On Saturday, Oct. 19, Rosa's biological sister reported that she was able to message her on Facebook. As of 2:20 p.m., Rosa was reportedly somewhere in New York, either on Interstate 81 or Interstate 84, traveling to Florida, in either a tow truck or semi-truck, possibly a Peterbilt truck, with one or two unknown men.
