Body: Forwarded from a Sam's Club employee . . .
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 I asked 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 underwear with 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 10 minutes. 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.
BE SURE TO FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE, SO THEY KNOW JUST HOW SICK PEOPLE ARE
OUT THERE!!! (This happened at the Sam's
Wholesale Club 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 Most Wanted) 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 child in 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 Club stores, 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 give their parents hope and give the police a new lead in finding them.
