Grand Rapids trafficking survivor speaks up, helps catch abuser

 The Kent County Sheriff's Office of Human Trafficking Taskforce says a 16-year-old runaway from a Grand Rapids-area group home was trafficked.

Terrance Clay, a 38-year-old man, met the teenager at a Grand Rapids park, according to court documents, on Oct. 21. Clay is facing six felony charges for the alleged abuse, including child sexually abusive activity, using a computer to commit a crime, human trafficking and child sexually abusive material.

Clay was arraigned in 63rd District Court on Wednesday.

The trafficking survivor reported what was happening to her to the Kentwood Police Department, which brought on the Kent County Human Trafficking Taskforce as part of the investigation.
