50+ ‘Scary Stories’ That Are Actually 100% Real


“A bunch of people were outside, middle of the day, and a guy on a moped just pulled up and grabbed a little girl right in front of everyone. Some of the adults chased the moped out to the main road, but he got away. I actually passed the guy myself driving home, but no Amber Alerts had been issued and no one knew about it until he was long gone. He drove her out to this area that is just trees and swamp, but it’s still kind of a moderately busy road since people use it to avoid traffic. A school bus driver had been late leaving the school that day and just happened to see a man park his moped and walk off into the woods with a little girl, but again, the Amber Alert still hadn’t been issued, so she had no idea what was going on. She went home, made dinner and went to bed and watched the news that morning before leaving and realized she may have seen the kidnapper. She called the police and they went out to the area with search and rescue dogs and found the little girl chained to a tree. He had sexually assaulted her, kissed her on the forehead and left her in the woods to die, but thanks to the bus driver, she was found in time. I can’t imagine being out in those woods all night, and I’m an adult. There are bears, coyotes, snakes and millions of biting bugs. It had even stormed that night because I remembered being worried for her when it started raining. The real fucked up thing is that this wasn’t his first offense and he’d just gotten out of jail from his last sex crime when he took this little girl. It’s just so fucked up.”
