Good evening all. A 25-year old nursing student named Carlee Russell went missing around 9:34 p.m. local time (Hoover. Alabama) on Thursday, July 13, 2023.

She pulled over at mile marker 11.7 on Interstate 459 in Hoover Alabama.

Russell, called 911 around 9:34 p.m. local time on Thursday, according to a Facebook post from the Hoover Police Department.

Russell told the dispatcher that she saw a toddler walking on the side of I-459 South. After calling 911, she stopped to check on the child and called a family member who lost contact with her, though the line remained open.

Police arrived on the scene to find her vehicle and all of her belongings, but no toddler. And no trace of Russell.

Her family would greatly appreciate it if you could call your trucking brothers on and sisters on your CB and ask if anyone has dash cam and just so happened to be traveling in the area around 9:34 p.m. local time on Thursday, July 13, 2023.

Please keep this young girl and her family in your prayers. God bless you.

Found safe Saturday night. No further details.

This reinforces my policy of always wearing the seatbelt to prevent getting sucked out of your car by an alien. At least in this case, the aliens returned the person.

I’m glad this didn’t turn into another tragedy.

I'm very happy to hear she's safe. I have a hunch about this young ladies disappearance but this isn't the place, nor the time to speculate. That's above my pay grade smile.gif .

The idea that the toddler may have been a distraction to get her to stop isn't far fetched. Unfortunately it's one reason why many motorists refuse to stop and help those in need.
