Madrona Families Beware: Kidnap Warning

sirenThere was several postings on Madrona Moms about a suspicious man parked near Epiphany School the other day.  The description was as follows:

My husband and I were playing with our 3 year old near the preschool play area and the main play area near the gym. We noticed a man pull up and stop near the preschool area and park. He sat there and seemed to be watching us. After about 10 minutes he drove away but we then saw him pull up on the other side of the road (Denny) and park. Again he was looking our direction.

The second time we were near the main play area near the gym. He was parked outside of the parking lot on the street (Denny).

This happened in the evening and both times he was parked far enough away from us that we could not see his license plate. I can only say he appeared to be Caucasian?, maybe 40’s, wearing sunglasses, silver vehicle.

This incident as well as a rash of others around Seattle caused Epiphany as well as other local Madrona area schools to warn parents to be on the lookout.

Here are links to more details on the Queen Anne kidnap attempt,  White Center kidnap attempt, and the kidnap attempt I believed to be the kidnap attempt “near Seattle Center.”
