Bakersfield Police rescued a teen girl Wednesday who they say may have been a victim of human trafficking.

It started when BPD relieved a call from a person in Fresno who said they were texting with someone who had been kidnapped.

According to police the 15-year-old girl was able to describe the kind of car she was in and the people who were holding her via texts.

Police say the victim texted she was at the Motel 6 on Easton Drive in Bakersfield, but she didn’t know the room number.
