A Florida woman accused of engaging in the commercial sex trafficking of two 14-year-old girls is wanted by the FBI and may be in Miami, authorities said Thursday.

A warrant was issued for Keosha Renee Jones, 21, on Monday, the FBI said in a statement.

Jones, of St. Petersburg, is aware she has an outstanding warrant for her arrest and may have left the area to avoid apprehension, the FBI said. She may currently be in the Miami area, but she also has ties to Port St. Lucie, the FBI said.

Court records said Jones posted nude pictures of the girls to www.backpage.com, a classified ad site. Then she made them perform sex acts at motels in Pinellas County. Jones and another suspect kept the cash.

Authorities said the girls were runaways and told detectives they thought Jones would kill them if they didn't make money.
