Parents Reminded To 'Take 25' To Prevent Child Abduction
Updated: Wednesday, May 21 2014, 06:45 PM CDT
Laura Saenz loves to bring her son Milo to the park. But she makes sure to keep a close eye on him at all times.
"I think it's frightening to think that you can really look away for a minute and someone could snatch him or lure him off with ice cream or puppies or whatever," says Saenz.
Which is why she's worked really hard to teach him what to do if he comes in contact with a stranger.
Saenz says she tells her son to scream bloody murder, "You know, mommy, mommy, mommy! Just anything to make it more difficult."
That's exactly why local law enforcement is promoting Take 25. It's a campaign to teach your child what to do during a child abduction.
U.S. Marshal Robert Almonte says, "Falling on the ground, resisting, don't walk away with this stranger that you don't know, fall on the ground, yell, scream as loud as you can. Those are the kind of things we're talking about."
The campaign talks about taking 25 minutes to talk to your child and even role play in an effort to prevent them from becoming a victim.
"Unfortunately, there has been an increase in the number of attempted child abductions and even abductions and that's why we're doing this today, it's all about prevention," says Almonte.
