A Kidnapping, An Encounter With A Serial Killer, And A Stranger Forcing Himself Into Her Car: These Are 3 Things People Say Are The Scariest Things That They Survived

Fred West

“When I was 11 I was with a group of my pals a few streets away from home. A truck drew up and a man coaxed my friend to get in the cab, saying he’d buy her an ice cream.”

“We tried to tell her no but she was a messed up kid. They drove off to ‘get ice cream’ and we anxiously waited for her to come back, which she did about 20 mins later, minus the ice cream.”

“I went home and told my parents, who told her parents, they brought me to the police station and I had to give a description of him which was circulated by local newspapers.”

“He was never seen in the area again…but four years later on a Sunday morning, his face was on every newspaper and TV channel in the UK.”

“It was Fred West, the serial killer. To this day, I don’t believe he would have brought her back if we hadn’t made such a fuss about her getting into a vehicle with a stranger.”


The Kidnapping

“When I was 10 years old, I was abducted while my family and I were camping at a state lake. My parents had to run some errands, so all of us kids were left with one of our aunts.”

“I went to a creek next to where our camper was to go fishing, probably about ~75 yards or so. I had forgotten my bait and didn’t wanna go back for it. (un)lucky for me, a man was there so I asked him for some worms.”

“Said they were in his car just around the corner. He guided me there, and that’s when it happened. I was gagged and taken to a different part of the park grounds.”
