“If we see something, contend something. That really thing happened to me during a Phoenix airfield final Friday,” McCain said, referring to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
McCain pronounced she was entrance home from a outing when she “spotted — it looked peculiar — it was a lady of a opposite ethnicity than a child, this small toddler she had. Something didn’t click with me.”

“She was watchful for a man who bought a child to get off an airplane,” she added.
But a Phoenix Police mouthpiece told NBC News that while they did perform a gratification check during Sky Harbor airfield during McCain’s request, “officers dynamic there was no justification of rapist control or child endangerment.”
McCain has not explained what caused her to trust she had held a trafficking case, though wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: “At Phoenix Sky Harbor, we reported an occurrence that we suspicion was trafficking. we praise a military officers for their diligence. we apologize if anything else we have pronounced on this matter distracts from ‘if we see something, contend something.'”
