It's a dangerous combination: naive teenagers, predatory adults, and then the Internet that easily connects them.
So there's a new movie out aiming to alert all of us parents about online dangers called Finding Faith.
It's a story any family could relate to.
A 14 year old girl is on the Internet, she ends up getting a friend request from a boy who says he's sixteen. They chat. Then things go horribly wrong. The girl is kidnapped for sex trafficking.
One of the actors in the film is Erik Estrada, best known for his role in CHIPS. He, the movie's producer, and Jonathan Phillips, who plays the villain in the movie, were at the Sunset Church of God in Tarboro Wednesday night to present the film and talk to parents afterwards about Internet safety.
The movie is based on a true story and true events. It's a project from Safe Surfin Foundation, an organization dedicated to teaching parents and kids about online safety. (click here for safety tips).
Estrada says the ultimate goal is to get online safety education in every school across the country. He says if a school will include the courses, the organization will provide all the materials needed to teach the class for FREE.
