Parents beware! Child snatch gangs on the loose in Northern Thailand

PAI: -- Police and community leaders have warned parents in a sub-district of Pai not to leave their children home alone.

 

Even letting little ones play alone while parents are out back of the house could have dire consequences after two incidents in Mae Hee sub-district, Daily News reported.

 

Both incidents occurred within hours of each other on February 25th.

 

In the first a woman was out back of her house while her seven year old daughter Jupjaeng played near the road in the front.

 

Supharat Khamuang said that a car came and a man got out and ran up to her child who ran to the back of the house. The man did not see Supharat and tried to grab the child before the mother made her presence known wielding a stick.

 

Shocked by her sudden appearance the man said "I am here to sell yoghurt" then ran off. Supharat pursued him and saw him get into a four door Toyota Vigo with a "carryboy" on the back. It had no plates. There was a another man driving and the engine was running.

 

In the back seat was a woman.

 

The man who had run out was just taller than 150 cms with "isaan" appearance speaking central Thai, she said.

 

Reporters went to another house in Mae Hee sub-district just 3 kilometers away where they spoke to a Karen tribeswoman who had a similar experience just one hour after the other mother on the same day.

 

In this incident a middle aged woman got out of a white van and offered sweets to Khamma Korpoh's 2 year old grandson as he was sitting in the front of their house by the road.

 

Khamma saw this and rushed to his side. The woman was surprised by her sudden appearance and fled the scene. The van had black film on the windows and the mother did not get the plate number.

 

Mae Hee headman Prayun Pimpa said that it was a worrying situation and that children should not be left alone. The gang may be posing as traders, he said.

 

Woraphon Phonmanee the station chief at Pai is investigating and he said he was very concerned by the reports. He said this has never happened in his district to his knowledge and the police are working with community leaders and other authorities to warn the public about the potential for danger to their children.

 

"Children should not be left alone," he warned.

I repeat what I've posted several time before, this happens every day in Thailand (over 600 cases in 2016), and of course in many countries.

 

Happened in the outer part of my Thai family some 20 years ago, little girl (only child) about 3 or 4 years old, taken in a supermarket, never found, parents are still zombies, never had more kids, frightened it might happen again.

 

Can't be too careful on this.

I had a 10 year old cousin who was snatched playing in the street in Manchester, England, back in the late 1950s. He just disappeared and never seen or heard of again. It was said that young children were saver playing on the streets in London during the blitz when people were real communities and watched out for each other then they are today.

 

Thousands of children and young people go missing every year worldwide.  It means that parents have to be vigilant with their children, can`t afford to let down their guard even for a second.  It`s just a sad sign of the times we live in.

Stupid comment to a serious heartbreaking subject.

I think many TV readers would not mind at all if you take you cynical and jaded views elsewhere.

It's a shame that you feel so little for the children of this world that you have to make a joke at their expense. For those of us who have children and even those that simply care about children and children's welfare, I'd suggest that you save your (less than) witty comments for something a lot less serious than child abduction.

People that victimize children are probably the worst,, death penalty is too mild for them.

Just 10 days ago, a crazy guy was doing in front of my kid. In front of a temple. The camera filmed everything.

After that we hunted him down. He is in jail.

So anytime a child gets kidnapped, it's because of lazy parents?  Are you some kind of stupid?
