The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has rescued six out of the seven teenage girls reported missing in Nairobi in what is suspected to be a human trafficking syndicate.

According to the DCI, the girls were rescued by detectives from the child protection unit.

The agency further noted that detectives are currently working on rescuing the last girl.

It is still not clear where the six were rescued from as the DCI is yet to issue a comprehensive statement.

It is also not clear if anyone was arrested during the rescue mission.

The seven teenagers went missing on Saturday, November 14, 2020, after they were lured by a job advert looking for movie casting roles.


The call was for an opportunity to audition for an undisclosed role made from this number +176896663236.

One of the girls' relatives made a video asking Kenyans to help her find the missing teens who were lured out of their homes.

The seven teenagers were last seen in Komarock, Nairobi, with the last person in contact with the girls being a Caucasian male using an American number.

Relatives said that when the number was tracked on Thursday, November 19 authorities reported that the owner was travelling towards Mombasa.

Meanwhile, In September, US Trafficking of Persons Report 2020, placed Kenya on the list of countries with the worst human trafficking trends in the world.

As a country of origin, Kenyans are still trafficked to Saudi Arabia, Germany, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and India.
