Missing Pennsylvania Teen Believed to be Victim of Sex Trafficking
(NYP) – Missing Pennsylvania Teen: A missing Pennsylvania teen last seen in Queens may be the victim of sex trafficking, police sources said Tuesday.
Corinna Slusser, a 19-year-old college student, was last seen at the Haven Motel on Woodhaven Boulevard in Rego Park on Sept. 20 — and cops now fear she’s trapped in a prostitution ring.
Slusser recently filed a complaint against a man known for pimping out women in New York City, police sources said.
The teenager was first reported missing in Pennsylvania but her family later found photos on Instagram tracing her to the Bronx, police sources said.
The NYPD, which released her photo Monday, is on the lookout for the teenager, who has been studying marketing at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, according to her Facebook page.
Corionna’s mom, Sabina Tuorto, posted a message on Facebook begging or her daughter’s safe return.
“My daughter was a great student , a cheerleader. She had many friends and lived her life as a normal teenager. I need her home and I cant bare anymore days like this,” she wrote on Oct. 10.
“I fear the worst but I pray for the best and her to return home. Waiting for an Angel to hear my prayer,” she wrote.
Slusser has blond hair and blue eyes and is 5 foot 6. She weighs approximately 140 pounds and large black flower tattoo in the middle of her chest, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS .
