London police believe there could be more victims of a man charged with human trafficking a teen girl he met online.

The 49-year-old man was arrested Tuesday following a police investigation into allegations a teen girl was human trafficked over a three month period beginning in January.

It is believed the man first began communicating with the teen through Facebook at the start of the year and investigators are concerned there may be additional girls who were approached by the same man. They are asking anyone with information about the case to call them at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

David Clarke, 49, of London is charged with trafficking a person under 18-years-old, financial benefit of trafficking a person under 18, material benefit from sexual services provided by a person under 18, and procuring a person under 18.

Two counts of possession of a Schedule I substance was also laid against Clarke after police found drugs during his arrest.
