LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A special visitor made her way to Lubbock this weekend, lending support to people who are fighting sex trafficking here on the South Plains.

Nancy Alcorn of Mercy Ministries works with all types of women, including victims of sex trafficking.

She spoke at Church on the Rock Sunday morning and at the Overton Hotel Saturday.

Alcorn spoke at the Overton Hotel to mark the one-year anniversary of a well-known sex trafficking sting, arresting one underage girl along with Chanze Pringler and Megan Lee Norman.

"That a stand will be taken by people who care, that's why I'm here in Lubbock because I see those kinds of hearts in the people in this community. I love it and I want to be connected to it," Alcorn said.

As our local task force works to survey the needs here on the South Plains, Alcorn says that Mercy Ministries will be happy to assist in building a safe house.
