While shopping at Sam's Club

I'll share this true stories send to me by my father in law to all the mothers who have little kids shopping in malls. Maybe this could give us ideas on how to avoid our kids from respective predators.

>Wanted to share something that happened today while shopping at Sam's Club. A mother was leaning over looking for meat and turned around to find her 4 yr. old daughter was missing. I was standing there right beside her, and she was calling her daughter with no luck.>

> I asked a man who worked at Sam's to announce it over the loud speaker for Katie. He did, and let me say he immediately walked right past me when I asked and went to a pole where there was a phone. He made an announcement for all the doors and gates to be locked, a code something.>

> So they locked all the doors at once. This took all of 3 minutes after Iasked the guy to do this. They found the little girl 5 minutes later in a bathroom stall. Her head was half shaved, and she was dressed in her underwearwith a bag of clothes, a razor, and wig sitting on the floor beside her to make her look different.>

> Whoever this person was, took the little girl, brought her into the bathroom, shaved half her head, and undressed her in a matter of less than 10minutes. This makes me shake to no end. Please keep a close eye on your kids when in big places where it's easy for you to get separated.>

> It only took a few minutes to do all of that-another 5 minutes and she would have been out the door. I am still in shock that some sick person could do this, let alone in a matter of minutes. The days are over when our little ones could run rampant all over the place and nothing would happen to them.>

> The little girl is fine. Thank God for fast workers who didn't take any chances.>


> HOW SICK PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE!!! (This happened at the Sam's WholesaleClub in Omaha, Nebraska.)>

> >This message has been added to the story above:>>

I received this e-mail from one of my friends today. Let me first tell you that I work at the Sam's club in Lincoln,NE. The code that was spoken of is called a 'Code Adam'. It is named after John Walsh's (host of Americas MostWanted) son Adam who was kidnapped and murdered many years ago. It is used in all Sam's Clubs, Wal-marts, and Wal-mart super centers to locate lost children.>

>This is how it works. If by some means you have been separated with your child tell the nearest employee! The employee will page a 'Code Adam' (missing childin the store) over the intercom system followed by a description of the child(height, weight, hair color, age, name etc).>

>When that page goes out all the exits are immediately guarded, and/or locked in some cases, also every employee will stop whatever they are doing no matter what it is and help look for the missing child. This will continue until the child is found.>

>If the child is not found within a reasonable time then the police are notified and the store will conduct an isle by isle search. So if ever you are separated from your child now you know what to do. >>

>Missing children pictures hang by the exits of all Wal-mart and Sam's Clubstores, please take a few minutes to look these over as you leave, you just might have seen one of the children on them and you might be the one to givetheir parents hope and give the police a new lead in finding them.>

>Even if you do not have little kids, pass this one on to everyone you can think of. You never know who you might save by sending this email!>Please take the time and forward this to any friend who has children &grandchildren!
