Are We Forgetting Something?

Two parents and two kids were driving to Saint Raphael, on the southern coast of France. None of them, it would appear, noticed anything amiss. But then they heard a message from the police on the radio: come get your other daughter. They’d covered 90 miles since leaving their third child, a 3-year-old, at a rest stop. Police gave them back the girl, but said they would discuss the matter with a prosecutor.
