Common Predator Lures
Lost Pet Lure
Frequently a pedophile or child molester will approach a young child or a group of
young children and pretend that he has lost his pet. He will ask the child or children
to search the area, usually a secluded or wooded area, to find the pet. Prior to
starting this "Lure", the predator will have hidden the pet somewhere in the woods
where it is not easily visible and then the predator will guide the child in that
direction during the search. Once the pet has been found, the predator will ask the
child to help him take the dog back to the car. At this point the child should run
away as fast as possible because once the predator gets back to the car, then he
will grab the child and the child will disappear.
Asking for Directions
Predators also will use the approach of asking for directions to a certain nearby
place. He will frequently have a map out and will appear to be lost. The predator
will park or locate himself in an area that is close to where children are playing.
The Child molester will ask the child to show him on the map where the street or
place is located and appear to be confused on how to get there. He will ask the child
to drive or walk with him to show him exactly how to get to the street or the place.
Once the child has entered the predator's vehicle, it is usually the last time the
child is seen. The child should learn to never talk to anyone asking for directions
and to never accompany any stranger in a vehicle.
Offering Candy or Toys
Child Molesters often will approach a young child and offer
to give the child a piece of candy or an expensive toy. Young boys are particularly
vulnerable to offers of new electronic games or remote controlled cars or trucks.
The predator will show the child the toy and let him play with it for awhile. Then
the predator will tell the child that he has another toy just like the one they are
playing with and if they go back to the vehicle they can get it and play together.
Often the child is eager to see the second toy and will walk with the predator back
to the vehicle to get the second toy. Once there, the predator grabs the child and
puts him into the vehicle and drives off.
Children must learn to never accept anything offered by a stranger no matter how
nice it looks or how much they want to play with it. They must run away and tell
an adult all they know about the predator.
