I came out of the grocery store with my baby girl in her stroller, officer. I realized when I got to the car that I left my purse with my car keys in it on the checkout counter. I gave my little sweetie her bottle, left her by the car, and literally ran back into the store to get my purse and keys. I couldn’t have been gone for more than thirty seconds and by the time I got back to my car, my little darling was gone and all that was here was her bottle.
Please, officer, you must find my precious baby. My husband is going to kill me!
