what should i do??????

so i went outside a few mionutes ago and could hear someone yelling for help. so i called the police station and they tell me that because i live in an apartment complex that is surrounded by other apartment complexes and i cannot pinpoint where it is coming from that they dont have enough manpower to go search the appartment complexes. i have 3 kids and cant just go running the neiborhood trying to find who is yelling for help! what should i do?

  • You already did what you could so if something happens don't feel bad because you atleast tried to inform the police.

  • Do you know anyone else's phone number nearby? Maybe someone else knows who is yelling and they can call the police, or at least tell you where it's coming from and you can call back.

  • You also don't want to try and play hero and put yourself in a dangerous situation. Can you still hear them? If you still hear them try calling again maybe they will send someone out. If you no longer hear them they might have found help.
