Text messages from a British Sainsbury’s worker helped save a kidnapped four-year-old girl in America.
Supermarket worker Harry Brown, 21, traced little Yvette Henley to a motel in Arizona after befriending her estranged father, who had fled.
He started talking to Virgil Henley, 28, on Facebook after the pair had coincidentally connected online a few years ago.
Harry chatted to Henley politely over messenger, asking him about money, the weather, and eventually offered to get him a pizza.
They exchanged messages back and forth for a while, but when Henley accepted the offer of the pizza, Harry was able to give police his location.
Harry asked him: “Do you want a pizza?”
Henley replied: “My kidneys hurt soo bad I can’t eat but my wife does.”
He then gave Harry the hotel address and his room number.
Previously Yvette was reportedly staying with her father when a court granted guardianship to her grandparents, Gary and Kim Forester.
But after the hearing in June, which found that Yvette was suffering “emotional damage” and was in danger, her dad was unaware of the outcome and nowhere to be found.
The girl’s anxious grandparents contacted police who launched an investigation, but after almost three weeks she was still nowhere to be seen.
It wasn’t until Gary, 46, and Kim, 47, contacted Harry – a total stranger – that they jointly managed to solve the case and find Yvette.
After discovering Harry and Henley were Facebook friends, Yvette’s grandparents pleaded with him to help them, so he agreed and struck up a conversation with their estranged family member out of the blue.
Over two days of talking, Harry teased information out of him and learnt he had taken his girlfriend Alyssa, 28, and Yvette to Arizona, where they stayed in cheap hotels or slept rough.
He eventually pinpointed their exact location by offering to order a pizza to his room at a motel and even convincing him to hand over the room number.
Instead of the food showing up at the door, police did. Yvette was recovered and is now living safely with her grandparents in California, who has custody.
Harry, of Staines, Surrey, said: “I spend my life on the internet but little did I know that talking to random people would lead to me finding this little girl.
“She is loving where she is now. I cried so much when I saw the photos of her with her grandparents.
“The police had been trying to find her since May and within two days I got his exact location.
“It’s a really weird set of circumstances that fell into place. Before, Yvette was probably living a nightmare.
“Now she is in the best place possible for her. She is having the happiest days of her life.
The dad, who was using a Facebook profile under the name Mark Johnson, let slip his location while complaining about the humidity, ranting: “f*cking HATE Arizona”.
Harry later managed to get his exact location in Kingman, Arizona by offering to buy him pizza.
Harry, who plans to fly out to California to meet Yvette and her grandparents soon, added: “He said he didn’t want any but his wife did.
“He gave me his exact address and room number. I rang Gary straight away.”
San Bernadino County Sheriff’s Dept said: “The missing person report for Yvette Henley was filed by her grandfather on June 20 in Hesperia.
“He believed Yvette was with her parents and he had not been able to reach them.
“The grandfather was given guardianship of Yvette also on June 20.
“At the time he filed the report it had been 10 days since he had last seen the three of them.”
A spokeswoman added: “On July 9th the reporting party contacted the Hesperia Station stating he had been advised that the child was located in Kingman, Arizona.
“Child Protective services was contacting Kingman and the reporting party stated he would be going to Kingman to pick up the child.”
Christian Researchers Claims The Rapture Starts On Saturday
There’s yet another doomsday date approaching, with some claiming that the rapturewill start on Saturday.
That’s when certain Christians will get sucked up into heaven while the Earth descends into a chaotic “tribulation” period for those who are left.
Several videos about the supposed coming cataclysm are going viral with similar claims, including the trippy clip above showing some kind of space queen giving birth in front of a seven-headed moon lizard.
But don’t stock up on Jim Bakker’s doomsday food buckets just yet. The entire basis for the prediction is bunk. The September rapture date came from a Christian researcher named David Meade who calculated it would occur 33 days after last month’s eclipse, The Washington Post reported.
“Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” Meade told the newspaper. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I’m talking astronomy. I’m talking the Bible … and merging the two.”
Meade believes global catastrophes will be caused by a secret planet called Nibiru passing the Earth on Saturday. The world won’t end, “but the world as we know it is ending,” he told the Post.
NASA ― and just about every astronomer ― said Nibiru doesn’t exist.
“Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax,” the space agency said on its website a few years ago when similar doomsday predictions went viral. “There is no factual basis for these claim.
Even fellow Christians are calling out Meade and others over the latest doomsday predictions.
“Meade is a made-up leader in a made-up field, and should not be on the front page of anything, let alone Fox News,” Ed Stetzer of Christianity Today wrote.
While the writers of the Bible have used numbers at times, Stetzer said there were no “secret numerical codes that require a profession called ‘Christian numerology.’”
In other words, go ahead and make plans for Sunday.
