_ Flight attendant Shelia Frederick was making her rounds on an Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to San Francisco when she noticed something strange: a blonde teenager wearing wrinkled, old clothing was seated by a window, next to a well-dressed older man. The girl had a large bruise on her leg. When Shelia noticed her, the girl looked up. Shelia said, “Her eyes just pierced my soul. They fixed on me and I knew something was wrong and I needed to help her.” Shelia went to the nearest bathroom and placed a note for the girl where she could find it. She also left a pen. When she returned to the young girl, the man seated next to her was eyeing a menu. Shelia looked at the girl and mouthed “go to the bathroom.” The girl did and when Shelia checked the note, she had written back: “I need help.” Shelia called the captain, who arranged for police to be waiting in the terminal when the plane arrived in San Francisco. The teen was a victim in an incident of human trafficking. She had been kidnapped for over two months by the time she and the flight attendant locked eyes.
