A father from Texas was travelling with his family through Memphis on a summer road trip when they made the typical stop for food and gas. Due to some confusion about who was sitting where, the rest of the family hit the road again without realizing that the father had gone inside to get change for gas.
The man revealed that he had made numerous attempts to get in touch with his family, including calling his own cell phone, which was still in the van. “Six different cell phones and nobody answers, and my phone is in there because it’s on the charger and nobody answers it, and then it starts going straight to voicemail. I mean, that’s odd.”
The man panicked because his initial thought was that his children had been kidnapped, but he was eventually able to reach them by using a nearby motel’s computer to contact someone on Facebook who could help him get in touch with them.
The family had traveled around 100 miles away when they were finally contacted and made aware of their blunder. They were eventually all reunited and realized it was just a big mistake.
