It turns out that it wasn’t a GPS device, but an RFID chip. “It’s used to tag cats and dogs. And someone had tagged her like an animal, like she was somebody’s pet that they owned.”
In a way, that makes it even creepier than a GPS device. RFID chips have a very short range. To be useful for tracking someone’s position, they would have to be kept confined in an area where the right equipment is in place to send or receive signals from the chip. The doctor would later discover that this woman was a victim of sex trafficking.

They should be able to track down the maker of that chip and simply follow the trail of where it went from the time it was made to where it finally ended up. Or close to it anyway.
Once the trail starts getting cold you snatch up those people and make them talk.
That's crazy to think about though. She was probably kept in a place with readers spaced out to limit her mobility. Plus they could just scan her and her other victims and trade them like cattle.
We live in a sick GD world. Technology just makes evil more efficient.

The fear campaign against them is amazing. Almost none of it is real.
This story has me asking questions. What was the purpose of the RFID? It's funny how we don't even know that, but we know they're scary because this story.
As mentioned, these are difficult to track.(Someone said impossible, that's not true.)
