Forwarded from a Sam's Club employee . . .

Wanted to share something that happened today while
shopping at Sam's Club.
A mother was leaning over looking for meat and turned
around to find her 4 yr. old

daughter was missing. I was standing there right beside
her, and she was calling her

daughter with no luck.

I asked a man who worked at Sam's to announce it over
the loud speaker for Katie.

He did, and let me say he immediately walked right past
me when I asked and went

to a pole where there was a phone. He made an
announcement for all the doors and

gates to be locked, a code something.

So they locked all the doors at once. This took all of 3
minutes after I asked the guy

to do this. They found the little girl 5 minutes later
in a bathroom stall. Her head was

half shaved, and she was dressed in her underwear with a
bag of clothes, a razor, and

wig sitting on the floor beside her to make her look

Whoever this person was, took the little girl, brought
her into the bathroom, shaved half

her head, and undressed her in a matter of less than 10
minutes. This makes me shake

to no end. Please keep a close eye on your kids when in
big places where it's easy for

you to get separated.

It only took a few minutes to do all of that-another 5
minutes and she would have been

out the door. I am still in shock that some sick person
could do this, let alone in a matter

of minutes. The days are over when our little ones could
run rampant all over the place

and nothing would happen to them.

The little girl is fine. Thank God for fast workers who
didn't take any chances.


ARE OUT THERE!!! (This happened at the Sam's Wholesale
Club in Omaha, Nebraska.)

This message has been added to the story above:

I received this e-mail from one of my friends today. Let
me first tell you that I work at the

Sam's club in Lincoln, NE. The code that was spoken of
is called a 'Code Adam'. It is

named after John Walsh's (host of Americas Most Wanted)
son Adam who was kidnapped

and murdered many years ago. It is used in all Sam's
Clubs, Wal-marts, and Wal-mart super

centers to locate lost children.

This is how it works. If by some means you have been
separated with your child tell the

nearest employee! The employee will page a 'Code Adam'
(missing child in the store) over

the intercom system followed by a description of the
child (height, weight, hair color, age,

name etc).

When that page goes out all the exits are immediately
guarded, and/or locked in some cases,

also every employee will stop whatever they are doing no
matter what it is and help look for

the missing child. This will continue until the child is

If the child is not found within a reasonable time then
the police are notified and the store will

conduct an isle by isle search. So if ever you are
separated from your child now you know what

to do.

Missing children pictures hang by the exits of all
Wal-mart and Sam's Club stores, please take

a few minutes to look these over as you leave, you just
might have seen one of the children

on them and you might be the one to give their parents
hope and give the police a new lead in

finding them.

Thank you.

Sincerely, Rudy Magee Sam's Club #6413

Even if you do not have little kids, pass this one on to
everyone you can
think of.
