Description

In September of 2017, 18-year-old Corinna Slusser went missing. In the years prior to her disappearance, the Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania native lost all interest in high school. Her grades began to slip and she would have had to go to summer school in order to graduate, but Corinna had different plans. She dropped out of Bloomsburg Area High School and set her eyes towards the future. She wanted to move in with her Aunt who lived in Massachusetts in 2018 due to the fact that her and her mother, Sabina, were not getting along. However, this move would never happen. A few months before Corinna went missing, she had met a man by the name of Yhovanny Peguero. Yhovanny told Corinna that he would be able to help her get a place to stay in New York City. In August of 2017, Corinna picked up and went to the big apple. She only took her cell phone and ID with her. She left all of her other belongings behind. A month later, Corinna disappeared and she is believed to have been the victim of human trafficking. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Corinna Slusser, please call the NYPD Human Trafficking Task Force at 212-384-1000.

Agreed that the mother's behavior is odd. I think I know why Corinna was seeking "something' when she left home.

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who felt disturbed by her mom’s comments. She was so matter of fact for this being pretty recent.

the mother is crazy as hell. I am a recovering addict and I have a mother as well. #1 there is a difference in tough love and whatever it is this mother is unsuccessfully trying. the mother keeps saying that she liked "attention" of course she liked attention. she has a mother whom constantly destroys her spirit and character. #2 shame on you "mama" .I am hoping and praying this VICTIM in so many ways is out there getting help.

Rachel Sprague so if your mom doesn't raise you with the proper respect and admonition you're going to run off and pretend like you're doing fine, and then call her and drop a bomb on her, I'm in inner city new York getting attacked by my pimp. mom please take this news the right way.... right? gtfoh, only you can respect yourself and if you're going to put yourself in extreme danger, you put yourself there.... responsibility is a you thing

This woman is so angry she can't even feel the appropriate emotions. Tragic all around.

Reading the comments, it's apparent emotion has overcome logic. It's quite obvious through the picture presented that someone cared for this young girl. The "lovely" girl in the picture is so because someone obviously loved and cared for her. A difficult child is exactly that. The mother (as a parent) has a responsibility to require certain things of her child regardless of her age. I find it ironic that comments attack the mother and the father isn't even mentioned. Where is his care, love and responsibility? Oh, I know. It's the mother's fault. Please, let's be logical.

Wow. If I were her I wouldn't run to my mother in my time of need either. This is devastating to listen to. I hope Corinna is out there and able to get the help she desperately needs.

It hurt me to hear the manner her mom talked about this beautiful young lady. Too bad she didn't have the time to let her open up. Seems she so needed support. The tone of her voice gives me a chill. I think she should think about what her daughter went through.

Alison Wonderland interesting let's blame the mom, if you're the daughter and were being abused by a pimp, called your mom and she says come home, but you need to get a job and finish school, you're facing a really tough choice there? do I come home and follow the rules of my parent or do I remain a prostitute in possibly the most dangerous city in the world. How much responsibility is thrown upon a parent who's child willfully chooses to not give a F?
