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.

Being a "strict" single mom myself, however of a 19 y.o. young man, what I can definitely comment on is the fact children, regardless being over the age of 18 or not, will do what they want and find a way to do it. If you're going to victim shame this mom as if she didn't do enough or on her comments about what her daughter was engaged in, you're delusional yourself as to what you may have done as a teenager that YOUR parents disagreed with but you felt you could handle. Bottom line is Corinna had made her own choices but was ready to come home WHICH her mom was opening her home for Corinna to do so. What Corinna didn't do was ask to be abused, harmed, and/or murdered in the process of the choices she was making. These children do NOT have the frontal cortex developed to really comprehend what dangers they are getting themselves into. They are shown the sexy, glamorous side of things to them.. meaning money and material things. Not safety, security, and a way out whenever they want it. So before you blame the mom for her way of portraying her ordeal with losing a child, be more empathetic and remember you were once a teenager and your parents weren't as aware of everything you did either.

All these comments attacking this poor mother who has done nothing wrong. I don’t think they even understand the words they’re hearing. She’s missing her child and she gets attacked too... poor, poor woman. Good parenting is setting boundaries with consequences - the mother did that before Corinne got trafficked and everyone’s commenting like she did that after. 🤦🏻‍♀️

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.

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.

Hard to listen to the mother talk about all this so nonchalantly...

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.
