Stranger Tries to Lure 11-Year-Old into Car but His Plan Is Ruined with Her “Code Word”
3 The Pinal County Sheriff praised the parents for teaching their daughter how to deal with strangers
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office praised Maddison’s parents for educating their children on the dangers of going with a stranger and how to deal with them. Sheriff Mark Lamb said: “The mother of this child did an awesome job teaching a code word to her child, and that potentially saved that girl’s life.”
2 The Sheriff’s office is now requesting all parents to do the same
People are now being advised to teach their children the same way Brenda taught her kids. In an effort to reduce kidnapping incidents, the Sheriff’s office is urging people to make use of the ‘code word’.
Sheriff Lamb added: “We hope by putting this out, it will encourage parents to have that conversation and create a plan with their children, so they know what to do if they are in that situation.”
1 The same man has been spotted driving around the neighborhood in several reports
There have been numerous reports by children of the same man driving around the neighborhood frequently. A precise sketch of him was impossible because he had his hand over much of his face since he didn’t want anyone to recognize him. However, according to the police inquiry, the man is described to be in his 40s, has a short beard, and drives a Ford Explorer-like vehicle.
