Tonight on Eyewitness News, we will take a look at sex trafficking in the Houston area.

Each year, thousands of runaway girls end up in Houston and get lured into sex trafficking. Tonight, Eyewitness News reporter Jessica Willey will look at an operation based in Spring that helps young victims try to resume normal lives.

"We want them to have an opportunity for them to feel safe, get the fog, let the fog lift out of their minds," said Kellie Armstrong, executive director of Freedom Place.

You will hear more about the mission of Freedom Place and how it is changing lives. That's a closer look, on Eyewitness News tonight at 10.
