CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Alyssa Beck was a 15-year-old Jacksonville, Fla., runaway looking for a way out of her family home. She ran right into the hands of a violent sex trafficking group. Beck reveals her fight for survival and the horrors she faced in "'48 Hours': Live to Tell: Trafficked," airing Saturday, March 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
"'48 Hours': Live to Tell: Trafficked" looks at the world of sex trafficking through the eyes of a survivor and the vast array of people who tried to help her – from law enforcement, her family, the legal system and child advocates. Correspondent Michelle Miller talks with Ashton Kutcher about his nonprofit, Thorn, which has developed software used by law enforcement to identify potential victims and abusers and disrupt groups just like the one that held Beck captive.
Beck recounts her battle to survive, how she escaped and struggled to stay away from that life, and her world today in "'48 Hours': Live To Tell: Trafficked" which features interviews with her mother, Kutcher, law enforcement, child advocates and more.
