How Cops Missed Opportunity to Rescue 8-Year-Old From Kidnapping
Did Texas cops miss an opportunity to rescue a kidnapped child sooner? After Salem Sabatka, 8, was snatched while walking with her mom in their neighborhood Saturday evening, she was taken to a local hotel. Though she was rescued early Sunday and returned home safely, police had visited that very hotel and inspected her alleged kidnapper's room hours earlier. A desk clerk at the hotel had called local police to say a girl matching Salem's description was with a man in a third-floor room.
