Kidnapped at 13
Melissa was born and raised in Orange County, California in a very abusive home. As a young girl, she was kidnapped, trafficked, and forced to use drugs as a means of control. Nine months after her abduction, she escaped by jumping out of a moving vehicle. Unable to escape the mental torture she endured, she ended up working on the streets of Los Angeles to support her crack habit. Now, Melissa is a survivor advocate speaking up for victims of the sex trade.
