As reported by WUSA9, JinJing Ma was last seen on Thursday at 8:15 pm and the FBI's Human Trafficking Task Force is investigating all leads.

The woman had given her a change of clothes and the pair left in a white Infiniti SUV. It appears as though Ma got into the vehicle willingly.

Investigators said the fact that Ma left without force does not "release any of their concerns." Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa

The vehicle had New York license plates, and they believe that Ma was taken to New York. Police Chief David Huchler said:

Because of the age of the child, this is a very serious incident. She is believed to have left the airport with an unknown middle-aged Asian female.

The woman was described as weighing approximately 130 lbs, standing 5'2" to 5'5" tall and is also said to have met up with an unknown man at the NY airport.

Ma was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a black jacket. It is unclear whether Ma knew the woman or what her reasons were for leaving.

Her friends told reporters that Ma excused herself from the tour group soon after getting her passport from check-in security, saying that she needed to go to the bathroom.

Anybody with information about Ma's whereabouts can contact the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority 703-417-2400 or Virginia State Police at 800-822-4453.

Statistics released by the Ark of Hope for Children indicated that 600,000 to 800,000 victims - 50% of whom are children - have been forced into commercial sex or labor.

It is a $32 billion-a-year industry and most of the transactions for underage girls are conducted on the Internet and through digital means.

In other recent news, a 6-week-old baby who went missing from Western Nebraska was found and reunited with her parents.
