Siblings Stop Kidnapping: Toddler’s Young Brother And Sister Chase Down Abductor [Video]

Siblings were able to stop the kidnapping of a toddler that could have had a far worse outcome. ABC News reports that 22-month-old Owen Wright was playing at a Sprague park with his 8-year-old sister, Delicia, and 10-year-old brother, Breden, when everything happened. All three of them were reportedly unsupervised while in the park that was near their babysitter’s house on Sunday. The children’s father — Michael Wright — was working at the time.

In surveillance footage obtained from a grocery store near the park, a suspect runs up and flees with Owen. The boy’s brave brother and sister jumped to their feet and ran after the kidnapper. Thanks to Delicia’s loud screams, others heard her and suddenly two teenage boys helped in pursuit of the abductor.

Realizing he was in trouble, the kidnapper left Owen in a vacant lot before he continued off in his run.

Although the siblings stopped this kidnapping, the suspect is still at large. Anyone who recognizes the suspect is urged to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 509-725-3501.
