Some of the warning signs hotel and motel staff should look out for include pornography rentals in rooms where children are staying, children arriving for an extended stay in a room with very few possessions, and children that appear to be disoriented, confused, or unable to speak for themselves, said Erin Williamson, the survivor care coordinator for the New Haven-based nonprofit Love146, which is dedicated to fighting human trafficking domestically and around the world.
Williamson also said staff should be on the lookout for children who do not leave their room for extended periods of time, or never leave the room alone. Another red flag would be multiple adults coming and going from the same room, she said.
