Child Safety Situation #5

Girl; abducted at school bus stop.

Cindy* was watching her daughter Sandra* waiting for her school bus at the end of her driveway. She left the window for a minute to go to the bathroom. When she got back to the window, she was disappointed to see that the school bus had come and gone, and she did not get to wave goodbye to Sandra.

She was just pouring herself a cup of coffee when two neighbors who had been watching their own kids ran in to tell her they saw a man jump out of a truck, grab Sandra, and drive off.

The next day, Sandra's lifeless body was found in a ditch, not far from her home.

What can you learn from this tragedy?

You cannot afford to let a young child stand alone beside a public road. Also, you make snatches more difficult if you surround your property with a high fence, electrical gates, or get a guard dog.

Get involved:
If you see an adult drag a child into a car and take off, get the license tag number or at least the color and kind of car. Stoop down in the dirt and write the license number down, or run your hand through your hair and write the number with your finger on the side of your car, if you do not have a pencil. Take your own children back inside, and immediately call 911. Do not waste time telling the parent what happened until the police are called.

Insist the police bring a bloodhound immediately. A well trained bloodhound can trail such faint scents that the scent of the child coming out of the ventilating system of a car may be enough. Go to the Jimmy Ryce Bloodhound Network for more information.
