Michelle stated: "She came running in and said, 'Hey. There's a tricky guy outside that tried to get me.' I believe that he was looking for a child to take."

Michelle stated that she ensured she taught her children about "stranger danger" from a young age.

"I didn't want to go with him because he looked like a tricky man. I didn't know him, so I didn't want to go with him," Emmy said.
