Federal agents say they found 13 people held hostage at a home in Cloverleaf, Texas.
Authorities went to the home after receiving a 911 call from a man who claimed his father was being held for ransom. All 13 hostages were in good condition after being checked out by paramedics and authorities believe they may be part of a human trafficking ring. Six men were arrested and the investigation continues into the illegal activity.
