The biggest nightmare of a parent is his/her child being kidnapped. No matter the precautions (after all, parents are super responsible and protective of their kids), the risk of abduction is always hovering in mid-air, especially if they are far away from their kids.

Such is a case that happened one day on Heather Glenn Court on Woodbridge, Virginia.
