COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding an Ohio man indicted on charges of trafficking two teenage girls for sex.

A statement from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office says Michaiah Price was indicted last month by a Franklin County grand jury in Columbus on charges that include trafficking in persons and compelling prostitution.

The Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force is looking for the 26-year-old Reynoldsburg man accused of trafficking a Toledo-area teen and a Columbus teen.

Task force investigators found that Price allegedly advertised the teens for sex on the Internet and then trafficked the 15-year-old and 17-year-old girls out of central Ohio hotels between October 22 and December 6, 2016. Both were rescued.

Anyone with information about Price’s whereabouts is urged to contact law enforcement.
