Alivia's mother, Christine DiDiano, identified the clothing as her daughter's. Lorenzi has been uncooperative with law enforcement officials and has refused to discuss Alivia's disappeance. Alex first reported to Alivia's family that she had returned to Pennsylvania after their vacation. However, according to the PA Liv Safe website, Lorenzi has since told family and police that Alivia decided to stay in Florida. Lorenzi is known to travel out of state frequently and use commercial air lines as well as rental cars. He had made multiple trips to the Naples, FL, and Wheeling, WV, areas in the weeks before his arrest on the charges unrelated to Alivia's disappearance.
Officials in Orlando, Tampa and Miami in 2015 voted to require massage parlors and strip clubs to post signs aimed at raising awareness of human trafficking.
The signs will read:
'If you or someone you know is being forced to engage in an activity and cannot leave, whether it is prostitution, house work, farm work, factory work, retail work, restaurant work or any other activity, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline".The awareness campaign underscores the severity of human trafficking in Florida. So far in 2015, 191 cases of suspected human trafficking have been reported in Florida, according to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center. Only two other states had more – California, with 477, and Texas, with 214.
Tampa and Miami top locations in Florida and the USA for sex slavery trade. It is our secret, a hidden culture of violence, drugs and prostitution we easily can ignore. Dottie Groover-Skipper is the Florida anti-trafficking coordinator for the Salvation Army. Groover-Skipper has an interesting history. The former Miami Dolphins’ cheerleader was teaching a class in self-esteem at a marginalized school in Miami. “There was an angry 13-year-old girl in the class,” she says. “One day she asked if it would be all right to bring her 4-year-old sister along with her into the class. “I did some investigating and ultimately discovered the two girls were being sold on the street every day by their grandmother in exchange for drugs. As horrifying as that was, the more I looked the more I discovered how common this sort of thing is.”
The numbers are not only staggering, Florida is right there near the top.
A story by Tribune reporter Mike Salinero almost two years ago pointed out that Florida was considered third in the nation in sex trafficking. They used the word “considered” because nobody really knows for sure. “The Tampa Bay area is a top destination for traffickers, looking for people to traffic or to bring victims here,” Salinero quoted Groover-Skipper as saying. This is a global issue with an estimated 27 million adults and another 13 million children victims of human trafficking, according to RandomHistory .com. Authorities maintain an estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year. Most trafficking in the United States occurs in New York, California and Florida.
FBI: Alivia Kail may have been abducted into sex slavery in Florida. According to the FBI, the case of a missing Brookline girl has taken a major twist. Channel 11’s Alan Jennings confirmed Tuesday that the FBI believes Alivia Kail is still alive, and she may be a victim of sex trafficking in Florida.
FBI PITTSBURGH —Alivia Kail has been missing for over two years, but the young Mount Washington woman may still be alive and caught up in an out-of-state human trafficking ring against her will. Allegheny County Police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said that's one of several possible explanations for what happened to Kail, whose case remains under investigation. "We're still looking at any financial trail, any kind of a paper trail or any sightings, but it's very possible that Alivia's alive in some other part of the country, or the world for that matter, being used in this manner," said Moffatt. "You can rest assured we have not given up on Alivia Kail, be she deceased or alive." The theory surfaced at Heinz Field, where the FBI was hosting a conference to raise awareness and educate the Pittsburgh area about the subject of human trafficking.
