CISCO, Texas -- A woman kidnapped in El Paso by alleged sex traffickers managed to escape when she jumped from an 18-wheel tractor-trailer rig in the north Texas community of Cisco, police said Thursday.

The woman was found Wednesday night at a Flying J truck stop along Interstate 20 suffering serious injuries from the jump, according to investigators.

The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment while authorities have issued a statewide law enforcement bulletin seeking the truck, which was being used by three men suspected of being sex traffickers.

"It is reported that another female was in the truck and may be in grave danger," Cisco police said in an online statement.

The semi-truck was described by police as a "green truck tractor with a white stripe and pulling a white box type trailer."

As of Thursday afternoon, the truck had not been located. Police urged anyone with information on it to contact them at 254-629-1728.

  1. This is such a sad story. I pray the woman recovers & I hope they find the driver. He needs to serve major prison time. I don’t think enough people will admit that sex trafficking is a major problem. It is dangerous and immoral.

    The question is how can we stop this?

  2. This is a bigger problem than we can imagine.
    It’s A DAMN SHAME no administration has cared – UNTIL NOW.

    Want sex traffic TREATED SERIOUSLY?

    THEN SHUTDOWN THE BORDERS and ROUND UP THE PEDOPHILES, like Joe “Fingers” Biden!

    TRUMP 2020! MAGA! KAG!

    1. LOl Jamesben always makes it about him and his warped world views. This idiot couldn’t care less about this victim. He is just using this story as a pawn to further his political beliefs. The same typical formula most trump supporters use. yawn…

    2. Jamesbean, you do know everything about the border since you spend all of your time guarding it. You don’t even have an actual job because no one wants to hire a convicted felon.

  3. Jamesben, aka Jim Benvie, has spent so much time standing next to the border wall that the sun has fried his nut-sized brain. He’s a lowlife thug supporting white-collar thugs like Trump and his spawn.
