Six-year-old girl befriends 911 operator after calling to report her toys were missing

A six-year-old girl befriended a 911 operator after she called to report her missing toys and claimed that a ‘bandit’ had taken them.

Addie Cooper, of Pell City, Alabama, was distraught when she woke up to find that her dollhouse, some of her Barbie dolls, and some Baby Shark stuffed animals had suddenly disappeared.

She searched the whole house, but couldn’t find any – so when her mother, Liz Haynes, was in the shower, Addie borrowed her older sister’s cell phone and called 911.

Audra Owen, a grandmother who works at the emergency room in St. Clair County, answered the call and helped the kindergarten teacher with her problem—and now they’re “best friends.”

Audra Owen, a grandmother who works in St. Clair County, answered the call and helped the kindergarten teacher with her problem — and now they’re “best friends”

‘St. Clair County 911, what’s the address of your emergency?’ Audra started during their phone conversation.

The youngster replied, “Hello. Some of my toys are missing.’

The two chatted about the toys for a moment before Audra asked the little girl if she knew what had happened to them.

“I think a bandit stole them,” she said.

The toy was not taken by a robber. With Christmas approaching, Addie’s mom knew the house would soon be filled with new toys, so she decided it was time to downsize and donated the old toys to Goodwill.

But while Addie reported the emergency during playtime, Audra clicked and they later decided to meet in person.

The 911 operator went to Addie’s house so she could show off her toys – and the sweet moment was documented by the local news station WVTM.

The unlikely couple chatted to the outlet about the incident, and Addie couldn’t stop spewing about her new boyfriend.

“She’s my best friend,” she told them.

As to why she decided to call the police, the toddler explained, “I searched the whole house and I couldn’t find them. I’ve had those toys since I was four.

“I had to tell her because it was an emergency. They’re family and if they lose each other, they’ll never see each other again.’

Audra said she was happy to talk to a “sweet kid” like Addie after getting a lot of “stressful” phone calls.

“She was just a sweet precious child who needed someone to talk to,” she said.

‘My job is very stressful. If I get the chance to talk to a sweet kid like Addie, it makes my day,” she continued.

“I tend to adopt all the people who come into my life as my own children.”

Addie’s mother said she was surprised at how Audra handled the situation.

She added: “Audra could have easily hung up on me or been ugly to me like, ‘Don’t let your kids play on the phone’ because they have bigger things to take care of. But she was so sweet.’

Addie still doesn’t know that her mom was the one who threw away her toys, but she loved opening her presents on Christmas morning and discovering a new dollhouse, Barbie and Baby Shark.

“Have you ever seen the bandit?” the outlet asked her.

“No,” she replied. “They only come at night.”
