Cops: 2 Kids Found Safe After Man Kidnaps Them When Family Car Broke Down

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say they are searching for a man they believe kidnapped two young children after offering help to their mother after the family car broke down along an Atlanta-area interstate.

Police say the children were subsequently found uninjured with two women, who reported a male acquaintance had asked them to babysit the pair.

DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said Wednesday the women contacted police after seeing media reports about the missing children. Parish said the man has not been identified, and the two women knew him only by a nickname.

Authorities began searching for 3-year-old Jalen Mattison and his 1-year-old sister Amari Mattison after their mother told police a stranger had driven off with her children after stopping to help when their 1996 Volvo broke down early Wednesday.

      It’s the usual gag. Stage a crime to bump off or sell your kids. This is what georgia trash do when they ain’t picking up SSDI and ADC checks. georgia sux.

    Because in this reality you cannot be racist towards a white person.

  2. Quickdraw says:

    This story is unbelievable. A Volvo breaking down? I call BS, somethings not right here.

    1. darnhank says:

      You kidding?? A 16 year old car that probably hadn’t had even an oil change since the twentieth century….

    2. Ken says:

      Well it WAS a 1996, a 16 year old car. Anything can happen at that age, even to good cars.

  3. Qaliph says:

    QuickDraw — my thoughts exactly. Something’s fishy here. Stay tuned for news about the mother…

    Those poor kids, I’m glad they are safe now. I hope they were not abused and will not be permanently emotionally scarred from this incident. I hope they catch the kidnapper and throw the book at him. Note to moms: get a AAA membership and carry a gun or at least OC spray.

    This too, is George Bush’s fault. They’ve been disenfranchised dammit.

      Noooooo, you are a racist because you refuse the will of O’Clueless………

        OK Progressive Loser, that was good,…you made me laugh.

  6. Crosscut says:

    This is just another example of the bizarro world this particular culture resides in. Just some of their daily goofiness going on.

  7. Progressive Loser says:

    Please call into the progressive shows on the radio (you can find a list by searching for them on the internet) and ask them why are 96% of all non-drug related crimes in America tied to registered democrats? Ask them why the three biggest (and 8 out of 10) wall street criminals were fund raisers of the DNC (corzine, madoff, rezcko, etc.)? Bet they go into a psychologically ill tirade.

    1. Gary Cook says:

      Oh no, you made me laugh again! You’re right, they don’t hesitate to call in to Rush, Sean, and Mark Levin.

      1. Progressive Loser says:

        Kerrie, why call into Rush, Sean, et al when all of the misinformation, hatred and psychological disfunction is on the progressive radio stations? IF – and I use that word knowing you are not – you are intellectually dishonest, you will research my statements. Then once done, you will realize how evil you really are!!!

  8. Progressive Loser says:

    Progressive / Socialist / Communist = Mentally Ill, Evil and Immoral Psychopath……….it’s that simple.

  9. Captain Obvious says:

    Glad to see the police and the press are sharing that nickname they know him by to allow the public to assist.

    Then again, maybe the name was too descriptive or obscene. After all, just about every guy including myself answers to “a___ole”..
