♦ Salisbury is a stop on the I-85 “human trafficking” corridor where missing U.S. teenage girls, women from Mexico, Central America, Asia, and Eastern Europe are forced into sexual slavery. According to law enforcement and organizations, who battle the human trafficking across North Carolina, a number of signs exist that a woman is engaged in sexual servitude. Branding with a branding iron or a tattoo needle are common. These brands most often appear on the nape of the female’s neck, the side of the neck, the upper back, and in some instances on the calf. Most frequent brands or tattoos encountered are barcodes, hearts containing dollar signs, a number, or the pimp’s name.
