When Susana Trimarco's daughter Marita Veron was 23, she vanished from their hometown in Argentina, a suspected victim of a human trafficking and prostitution ring with links throughout Latin America and Europe.
Marita Veron, who is missing, hugs her daughter Micaela. Police believe Marita was forced into sexual slavery. 1 of 3 Trimarco, 54, has spent the last 6 ½ years searching for her daughter, often putting herself at risk. While chasing down leads on Marita's whereabouts, she's entered into dark and dangerous brothels and confronted pimps and politicians who, she says, are complicit in her daughter's disappearance.
She has won accolades throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States for her work. But Marita is nowhere to be found.
"Marita is a wonderful and caring girl. My life will be completely absorbed with this fight until she is back and safe," Trimarco says.
On April 3, 2002, Veron left her house in the northern Argentine province of Tucuman early for a doctor's appointment. She was wearing a turquoise shirt, blue jeans and old white sneakers.

Unfortunately, Marita is dead. They killed her when she was no longer generating revenue, either being too old, or infected with HIV. I feel badly for this poor woman, and her daughter(s).
