ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – St. Louis County police and the FBI have arrested a man who they say sold a missing girl into prostitution.

Photos of the missing 16-year-old showed up on the website backpages.com in a listing for prostitution.

Undercover police then traced the posting to 27-year-old Reginald Williams who has been charged with interstate transportation of a minor with the intent to engage in prostitution.

He faces at least ten years, and up to life, in prison.
