Polly Klaas, an average American girl was having a sleep over with her friends. All of them were laughing enjoying themselves until a strange man came into their room: tied them up, and put pillow cases over their heads. This man took Polly and at moment that's when the town of Petaluma would never see Polly again. Eve Nichol, Polly's mother whom was sleeping did not hear them screaming. But luckily Polly's friends shimmied free from the ropes and ran to Eve (Polly's mother). Eve, panicking called the police to report her child was missing.
