8 /10 Inconvenient Store
Torres came back with milk and had made a call around 9:45 at a payphone to Mexico to talk to relatives. Maria noticed him and informed him about the mix-up, how Sofia wanted to go with him, and asked where she was.
But he didn’t see her. She asked around more, and everyone thought she was playing outside. When it became apparent she was gone, they called the police.
7 /10 Police Response
Police arrived three minutes later to begin investigating. They found no signs nearby and increased the search radius beyond the storefront for any sightings or clues.
They declared the case to be a possible abduction and called in the FBI to assist in scanning the area, including the use of infrared equipped military helicopters to sweep the nearby area, and started dives in the nearby Columbia River.
