A 14-year-old girl whose family claimed she was sold to a US Marine for sex has been found at Camp Pendleton in California two weeks after she went missing. However, her aunt claims the teen had been sold into sex trafficking. A girl whose family claimed she was sold to a United States Marine for sex was found two weeks after she was first reported missing at the barracks of Camp Pendleton in California. The girl's aunt, Casaundra Perez, told authorities her niece - who she says has learning disabilities - was sold to the Marine for sex. She claimed the military tried to engage in a cover-up and that everyone at Camp Pendleton allowed the victimization of the 14-year-old.
