Officer Gets A Bad Feeling When Neighborhood Girl No Longer Greets Him

Many years ago officers realized that a who lived near their station was not living in the most hospitable situation. One officer would visit her every day and she would run up to him and greet him. One day when the officer went to the home the little girl was nowhere to be found. He immediately started to act on the bad feelings he got from the situation.

Klynn Scales always said her childhood was difficult. The little girl would have to steal food from the local 7-11 just to ensure that she and her brothers got something to eat. But she had someone watching over her and he turned out to be a guardian angel.

While Scales didn't know it at the time, that guardian angel was named Sgt. Jeff Colvin - the officer who came by to check on her.

"Through all the bad situations, I would just picture him saying that he was here for us and that if we ever needed him, he would be right there,” Scales said to WGN. “He would always protect us, and so those words would come to me during the worst times of my childhood.”

One day, Colvin went by the house and the friendly little girl wasn't around. The officer felt something was wrong, and he went into the house to check on her. He found the child terribly sick and alone with no one home to take care of her.

Colvin scooped the 9-year-old girl up and rushed her to the hospital. She was treated for malnutrition. Thankfully, she was okay.

Scales lost contact with the officer and eventually moved on to make a better life for herself in Texas. The two have recently been reunited.

"I had actually thought about her," said the officer. He wondered what happened to the little girl.

Colvin said he wondered sometimes, like all cops, if he was on the right career path and really helping anyone. That thank-you from Scales helped confirm for him that he was helping. Not only that, but he inspired Scales to become a police officer herself.
