The group Children at Risk demoed a new map tool Thursday to alert parents of the prevalence of suspected prostitution massage businesses in Harris County.
Harris County has more massage businesses suspected of prostitution than any other county in Texas--more than 250 of them--according to Children at Risk.
Children at Risk demonstrated a map that parents can use to see if their child is one of the 35,000 in Texas who attend school within 1,000 feet of a suspected illegal massage business.

"Type in a zip code or a name of a town or a county that you'd like to see closer, and it'll zoom in," said the map's designer. "The red flags are suspected illegal massage businesses that we've identified through having at least one erotic review on rubmaps.com."
