Missing teen faces prostitution charges

One of two women arrested during a prostitution bust at a motel in Westbury on Monday turned out to be a missing teen from Queens, police said.

Nassau County police said during the operation, a woman, 24, from Hartford was arrested along with the missing teen, 19, from Ozone Park.

The arrests were made at 9:20 p.m. after the women offered to perform a sex act for an agreed-upon fee, police said.

Police said the 19-year-old had been reported missing Nov. 29.

The 24-year-old is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead, while the teenager faces arraignment on Jan. 1.
