A 10 year old girl walking with her friend is approached by a stranger, a prelude to an abduction, and avoids the situation by asking one question.
Maddison Raines said a man shielded his face and approached the two young girls in a park and claimed that her brother had “been in a serious accident.”
The man then allegedly told the girls he had been instructed to pick up the two girls and asked them to get in his car. She immediately asked him what the family’s code word was.
When the stranger didn’t know the answer, he blanked and drove off. The girls then ran home immediately.
She and her family had previously agreed on having a “code word” that only the Arizona-based family knew.
