A woman left her daughter with a stranger and then got into a car and drove away. The little girl was left alone with the man.
A man said that he was at Walmart when a mother ran up to him holding a little girl in her arms. She was looking very frantic and she told him that there was somebody who was chasing after her. She then jumped into the man's car. The man drove them around the parking lot for a little bit. When he stopped his car the woman jumped out of the car and hopped into another car. The car had two people in it and they drove off leaving the toddler with the man.
The man was left with a sweet little toddler in his car and he wasn't quite sure what to do with her. He drove the little girl to the nearest fire station. When he walked in he told the firefighters what happened. They had no information about the little girl. They shared a heartbreaking photo of the sweet toddler and were begging people to help them identify the little girl and to see if anybody had any information about her.
