PLEASE READ THIS AND HELP. I have no idea what I'm going to do and what I should do? I need an outside opinion.

 A couple of months ago we got new neighbors. Fine. Well they have a child that's not the same race as they are. Fine too. The thing is ... they seem a little weird. Little boy cries a lot in the morning. They're super permissive with him (i.e. lets him run around on balcony naked. he's about 4? screams and cries as if he's younger) Anyway ... it's not my style but still wasn't a huge concern.

The thing is there's been a handful of abductions around the area. All involving the same colored car they have. And today there was a new one matching a couple letters on the license plate.

They've just always given me an "off vibe." Can't explain WHY ...they just did.

Just to let you know I'm not the type of call CPS and get the police involved needlessly. I don't do this.... it just doesn't seem right. Then again what if it's not? I don't want to put innocent people through this ...

So what do you think? Call it in or shrug it off?

***EDIT***

So I posted this about a week ago, and haven't heard a thing since. No abductions, no cops ... no nothing. 

Yesterday me and my SO spoke with the neighbor for the first time, and he gave both of us the creeps. Does wear glasses, by the way ... and always has a change of clothes with him. Just ... strange. After he brought the boy in he went back down to the car to bring in some bedding. Just kinda strange, because I was under the assumption that he works all day and the child stays at home with the woman.

But anyway ... the kid was naked and on the back deck in less than 15 minutes. He's 4 ... probably closer to 5. And he won't tell my kids his name when he asks.


Just strange. I've been kinda researching, but nothing has came up.

Kinda sucks though because the vibe they give off makes me feel very uncomfortable in my own home. I mean ... even when we have guests over the child is running around on his balcony barefoot (it's wooden and probably old. Wouldn't dare walk on it barefoot :-/) and usually naked. He's always dressed in sort of ratty clothes ... and rides a girl's bike.

Which is fine and dandy by me, just not what I would expect with the child being adopted. I'm not really familiar with that sort of thing though ...

Advice? Help? Hell ... tell me that I'm being a crazy bitch, PLEASE, if you see no reason to be concerned. I just can't shake off th feeling!

I'd call for more details to see if there's any other similarities etc

 If they are innocent then they won't be in trouble, better to be safe than sorry!

I'd call it in..better safe than sorry and you can do it anonymously. if it is their child..biologically or adoptive..they will have the paper work to simply prove so.

I would call just in case. Just tell the cops what you told us about the car and the plates. Better safe then sorry. I called americas most wanted one time. I knew of this guy that had alot of similarties as a guy they were looking for. I would call if I were you.

call it in.  Your intuition may be right and you may save lives doing so.
