Tracie arrived at the gas station around midnight and convinced the store manager to let her look at surveillance video of the girl in the store that day. While Tracie and the manager were watching the tape, Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Davis entered the store.
When Tracie explained the situation to Deputy Davis, he asked her to fill out an incident report and probed for more details. The store manager remembered seeing the little girl regularly and was able to give Davis an idea of where she lived.
The next day, Davis and his colleagues spotted the truck Tracie had described parked outside a nearby trailer. The sheriff sounded his horn, and the man stepped out the front door. A woman stepped out behind him...in her arms was the little girl whose face had haunted Tracie for days.
