Mom Overhears Man's Bizarre Question About Her Kids, Horrified When She Sees What's Behind Him

This story is why it’d important to always remain alert when you’re in public with your child.

A mom in the town of Longview in East Texas named Amanda Florczykowski posted on social media about a scary experience she recently had at a local grocery store. She explains what occurred in some detail in her post:

I got in the check-out line at a local store early afternoon. I took my daughter out of the cart and the couple ahead struck up the typical conversation about how "cute your daughter is" and then asked about her age, repeatedly. I initially was understanding of what I assumed was a cultural barrier, but I quickly became uncomfortable with the woman's body language and close proximity to my cart/kids.

Florczykowski continued her description: I picked my daughter up only to have the woman ask if she could hold her. The woman was so close at this point that my toddler reached her arms around the woman before I could really respond.

She went on: In an instant her proximity finally changed and she backed away. I grabbed back on to my daughter as the woman was saying, "Say bye to mommy" - what an unusual comment to provoke a child to say. The woman resisted returning her when I physically pulled my daughter from her arms.

Florczykowski also points out she saw a man loitering around behind a closed checkout lane with no groceries, and she felt the man was watching her.

Amanda says she figured out what had happened when she did some research online, and she found out her experience was very much like other descriptions of how child sex traffickers were known to approach their victims.

Things that might be signs of child sex traffickers:

Abductors working in groups and spreading out across the store.
Anyone approaching you asking about your child, no matter their skin color, appearance, age or gender.

Keep in mind that the suspicious couple just checked out with two small items…not expensive and no problem abandoning them.

Be aware of violations of body space like how the woman kept coming closer and twice put her hand on Amanda’s grocery basket.

She made it easy for me to reach over and put my groceries on the belt, but that would mean the child was momentarily unattended.

Abductors might follow you to the parking lot and then kidnap a child they just made friends with inside while you are putting the groceries in the car.

Last but not least, keep in mind that abductors might follow you all the way home.
