At least 18 massage parlors were raided in Missouri recently as part of the state’s effort to battle human trafficking.

According to a report by the Springfield News-Leader, the massage parlors are believed to be part of a large ring of human sex trafficking in Greene County. Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley said on Thursday women at the businesses were being held against their will and forced to engage in sexual acts with customers. The women are believed to be from China or other east Asian nations.

Hawley, who has sought emergency orders to close the businesses down, said on Thursday his office is going to “hunt down” any human traffickers in the state.

“We will find you out, we will hunt you down and we will prosecute you,” Hawley said.

Hawley’s office named 18 spas and massage parlors in the state’s action against the operators of the businesses.

According to a report by ABC News, many of the businesses had been advertising sexual acts on websites, such as Backpage.com and Rubmaps.com.

Raids were also conducted in Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana.
