The Disappearance of Kristen Galvan


Kristen Galvan was only 15 years old when she vanished on January 2nd, 2020. She was last seen at her grandmother's home in Spring, Texas. Kristen left the home on the day of her disappearance and never returned. She has never been seen or heard from again.

Despite the fact that Kristen left on her own accord, her loved ones immediately began to worry for her safety. Her family members began to suspect that she had been sold into trafficking by a boy whom she had been hanging out with prior to her disappearance. Kristen's picture was reportedly seen on a website known for prostitution. Her family members attempted to locate her on Bissonnet Street--an area in Houston that is also well known for prostitution in trafficking. Unfortunately, Kristen's family members were unable to locate her.

Kristen's mother has since hired a private investigator, who reportedly might have tracked Kristen down in the Lake Charles area--but no other sightings of Kristen have been reported. It's unclear if she is still believed to be in the local area. She remains missing today.

If you have any information that could lead to Kristen's whereabouts, please submit an anonymous tip here.

UPDATE: In spring of 2021, authorities confirmed that they, too, believe that Kristen is a victim of sex trafficking. In fact, people have reported that they've seen Kristen's picture on a website that is well-known for prostitution. These sightings have only further deepened the concern for Kristen's safety. A news report published on Kristen's 17th birthday quotes FBI Special Agent Bethany Morris, who explained, "because Kristen is a possible victim of human trafficking, this means her life could be in danger."

If you have seen Kristen or have any information on her disappearance, PLEASE contact authorities and/or leave an anonymous tip. In addition to the link posted above, you can also contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline in the following ways:
