Sheila couldn’t ignore the girl and desperately tried to make eye contact while serving snacks on the flight.

She conveyed her suspicions to a colleague, and the two worked together to distract the man while Sheila tried to get the girl’s attention.

« Finally, she looked up, and the look in her eyes was just heartbreaking, so I apologized to go to the back, and I just broke down, » Sheila said in an interview on Good Morning Britain.

She devised a brilliant plan by placing a note and a pen in one of the airplane’s bathrooms and then locking it, intending it to be opened only by the girl.

While her colleague had the man’s attention, Sheila pointed to the bathroom, pretending to write. Then she waited, hoping the girl understood.

Fortunately, the girl apologized to use the restroom. The man stayed outside the bathroom with her, but Sheila refused to leave the area, keeping an eye on the man.

« I left a note in one of the bathrooms, » Sheila said. « She responded to the note, saying, ‘I need help.' »

Sheila informed the pilot, who contacted ground control to have authorities stop the man upon landing.

Sheila stayed in touch with the young woman she rescued from human trafficking, and the two have spoken several times over the years. The young girl even attends college, according to the Western Journal.

« If you see something, say something, » Sheila informs others.
