    Details of Disappearance

    Danica disappeared from Federal Way, Washington on December 21, 2007. That month her purse, coat and cellular phone were found at a Sunset Motel in Kent. Messages on the phone indicated Danica had been working as a prostitute. She lived with her mother and siblings in an apartment at 272nd Street and Pacific Highway South, an area known for its prostitution activity. She was reportedly dating a pimp at the time of her disappearance, and before she went missing she had begun staying out away from home all night.

    Authorities believe Danica left of her own accord and may be in the company of an adult male. Danica's mother, however believes she may have been the victim of human trafficking and may be being held against her will. Her case remains unsolved.
