Those suspicions were compounded when the unaccompanied teens, neither of whom had identification, presented one-way first-class tickets that were booked using another person's credit card.

When two girls, aged 15 and 17, tried to board a flight to NY from California's Sacramento International Airport on August 31 without identification, adult guardians or proper luggage, ticket attendant Denice Miracle chose to call the authorities.

"Between the two of them they had a bunch of small bags", Ms Miracle explained in a statement to the airline. "It seemed to me as if they were running away from home", Denice said.

American Airlines agent Denise Miracle told WISTV: "They kept looking back-and-forth at each other, like they weren't really sure. and then they were texting someone on the phone, and that person was giving them answers". "I told a supervisor go to call the sheriff that it just doesn't feel right". The girls said they were going to be paid $2,000.

Miracle noticed the ticket from Sacramento to NY was purchased online and the credit card had a different name. In this photo, American Airlines signage is seen near the ticket counter in its terminal at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, Dec. 10, 2004.

The girls told Sanderson about a man named "Drey" whom they met through the social media site Instagram. A sum of $2000 was promised as compensation. "And in my belief, you're going back there not to do the things that you think you were going to be doing.' And they said, 'Well, I wouldn't let anything happen that I didn't want.' And I said, 'Well, you probably wouldn't have a choice in the matter, '" Sanderson said.

"She probably really was their miracle that day, whether they want to believe it or not", he said.

Many are praising a Californian airport deputy and agent for potentially saving two girls from human trafficking.

American Airlines praised Miracle and said that her fearless actions and employee training likely saved the girls' lives.

Law enforcement officials said that if Miracle would not have called after feeling uncomfortable about the situation, they would not have intervened and the girls would have left the airport alone.

She pulled the teenagers aside while she called the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department Airport Bureau.

Sanderson said it would be hard to prosecute "Drey" from outside the state, as he was also likely using fake details and images on his social media accounts.
