Supermarket worker solves kidnap mystery from his bedroom
Police searched for weeks to find a missing four-year-old girl and return her to her grandparents but to no avail. However, the case ended up being cracked by an incredibly unlikely source.
After receiving a tip, a Surrey supermarket worker was able to pinpoint the exact location of the missing girl from his bedroom over 5,000 miles away from where she was being held captive.
Police may not have found a trace of the missing girl for weeks, but this complete stranger was able to find her in just two days, and he did it through pizza delivery.
Yvette was staying with her father, Virgil Henley, when a court granted custody of the four-year-old to her grandparents, Gary and Kim Forester, as she was found to be suffering “emotional damage” living with her father.
Despite the outcome, Henley disappeared with his daughter and girlfriend and was nowhere to be found. Concerned for the safety of their granddaughter, the Foresters worked desperately with the police to find Yvette’s location.
However, it had been three weeks since the court hearing and police were still unable to find any trace of the four-year-old. Taking matters into their own hands, Gary and Kim decided to start an investigation of their own.
Yvette’s grandparents decided to turn to Facebook and start asking people on Henley’s friend list for help. Henley had been secretive about his whereabouts, but the Foresters got lucky when they stumbled across one contact, Harry Brown.
