BALTIMORE (AP) — The mother of a Maryland teenager believes her daughter was trafficked when she went missing for days earlier this month.

The mother tells a D.C. TV station that her 16-year-old daughter was picked up from her Baltimore high school last week by a man she met online and disappeared. She said her daughter has high-functioning autism and trusts anyone she meets.
