Often missing teenagers are runaways, but there are many other circumstances that need to be considered with every missing teenager who is not old enough to make intelligent life decisions. Several questions need to be asked about the disappearances of these young girls, especially were they lured by older males into thinking life would be better somewhere other than home. Any teenage runaway is endangered, whether they chose to run away or whether they were lured or abducted and often the priority to search for them is quite low. Often law enforcement does not consider the possibility of human trafficking and in a number of these very cases that's exactly what has happened.
Samantha Briana Duran, age 14 (now 15), has been missing since January 24, 2012. It’s believed she snuck out a window in the dark and is most likely with Juan Pineda (Flores), aged 19, who is facing charges of contributing to the deliquency of a minor. They are believed to be traveling in a silver Honda and could possibly be headed towards Texas.
Several agencies are involved in her search, including Laura Recovery Center and Heidi Search Center, both headquartered in Texas. And CFSI-International.com along with Chuck Foreman who was responsible for finding Kelsey Barrett.
