Lucky for her...she could've wound up dead.

Calysta Cordova: Girl Who Outsmarted Alleged Kidnapper Speaks Out - ABC News

A 9-year-old girl is getting credit for her quick thinking and for speaking up after managing to escape from her alleged kidnapper last week.

Calysta Cordova was reported missing Thursday afternoon by her mother when she didn't come home from school. Authorities believed she was abducted on her walk home and issued an Amber Alert.

"My baby girl always walks through my door at 3:21 p.m. I noticed something was wrong, when she was nine minutes late...I called everyone, I panicked," said Steven Ryno, Calysta's stepfather.

"We must find her, that was the main thing that was kicking through our head. It is getting late, it is getting dark, it is getting cold, and I know my baby is hungry," said Ryno, recounting the incident.

Calysta was found safe Friday at the Circle K convenience store in Colorado Springs, according to ABC News' Denver affiliate KMGH. Colorado Springs police spokeswoman Barbara Miller told KMGH that authorities believe Calysta was in a car with 29-year-old suspect Jose Garcia when the car broke down.

A passerby picked them up and drove them to the Circle K convenience store, police said. There, Calysta ran into the store and asked for a phone, saying she wanted to call her uncle. Instead, she called 911.

Great post and great girl

..... sounds like the parents kept a very close eye and probably taught her how best to handle a very scary and dangerous situation.

Apparently, the scum bag who kidnapped her had previously molested another little girl. I hope they put this pond scum in a big alligator tank.

Sigh, okay, at least in prison for many years, so little girls can be safe from him. Scum bag.

Thank God that little girl is OK.

About the ignorant savage, he and those like him should be charged, tried, convicted, sentenced, and executed within 1 hour. At 2:00, he is charged. By 3:00, he is electrocuted. Elimination of these savages is the goal.

If only all children were capable of that kind of fast thinking.
