I dont understand, after they drugged and shaved her, they just left her in the bathroom? Why didnt they catch them? Were they tipped off that they were close to being caught? That was fast.
I worked part time for two different big retailers during the Christmas season the last couple of years. Part of the mandatory training was Code Adam procedures. The protocol was to cover all the exits, only allow exit from one door, one shopper at a time in single file, take the parent to that exit or the in the case were both parents were present, take the other parent on an aisle by aisle search. When a Code Adam was called, the name of the child was never announced over the PA as an abductor could use that information. One of the other things was to send store personnel into all the rest rooms, back rooms, storage areas as sometimes child abductors will take a child into a rest room and change their clothes or put them in a hat or otherwise try to disguise them in order to slip out of the store.
Im not saying this was the case here, but it is possible the abductor was trying to disguise the child and panicked when someone entered the rest room.
A Code Adam was only called once while I was working and fortunately the child had just wandered away but boy; that was the longest 5 minutes of my life.
Great! Now all the perverts on FR will know how to circumvent the authorities.
