Courtney Durr was waiting to be picked up by her mom's friend after school in Gloucester City, N.J., on Tuesday. At the same location, Art Deaner was supposed to pick up his friend's daughter, Courtney Fetters.
When Deaner arrived and saw Courtney Durr, who looked vaguely like the girl he was told to pick up, he called for her to come inside his vehicle.
"I told her I was looking for Courtney,'" said Deaner. "And the young girl said her name was Courtney."
"I got off the bus and he pulled up and he asked if there was a Courtney," said Courtney Durr. "I said, 'Yeah.' My crossing guard let me go and I went with him."
How does something like this happen? I mean, I can understand but there would be NO WAY I would allow a "friend" to pick up my child when my child doesn't really even know him. Also, if we don't tell our girls ahead of time that ______is picking them up (if its not us) and someone comes to pick them up without them knowing, they are to call us from the school or teacher's class room......EVEN if it's their aunt or grandparent.
