    Apparently a toddler has been abducted in Brighton. Helicopters been out looking, CCTV shows a man with a little girl.

    Police however saying nothing has happened.

    Hopefully a strange hoax and there's nobody in danger. Parent's worst nightmare.

    Here's hoping It's bullshit, looks like it could be a false at the mo.

    Oh, so nobody has formally reported it it's just eye witness?

    How do they know the kid wasn't with him in the first place?

    There must be something in it for the amount of police they have thrown at it.

    No child reported missing yet though.

    Could be just police contingency in operation.

    Who doesn't notice their kid gone though?

    On the other hand, why would they have helicopters out?

    I suppose if the caller was adamant the police would be on it straightaway, imagine if it was genuine and the Police didn’t react for a couple of hours til a child’s reported missing and it came out they’d known well before, the Police would be slated!

    The dad said the girl was reluctant to leave, with a 3 year old myself I know that situation all too well!
    The times I’ve carried him out the shop and he’s having a paddy I’ve never been challenged which in a way is not surprising but shows people wouldn’t step in if a kid was being taken out of a shop, one of those very awkward situations!

    I guess so, it was more to the extent with helicopters etc.
