JASPER, TX (KTRE) -

As a parent, it’s something you never want to experience. 

“It’s like a mother’s worst nightmare," said Niki Oseguera. 

One minute your child is playing freely in the front yard, and in the blink of an eye, they could be gone. 

“It was just like an everyday night. I walked out, she walked out behind me. I told her to go back inside, but of course she followed me out, she didn’t listen to me and I really didn’t think anything of it. I walk over there, not even there five minutes," Niki said. 

But the Oseguera’s say it was just enough time for an unknown man to try and snatch their daughter. 

“My little girl asked him ‘Who are you?’. And he just told her ‘Well come here little girl?'", said Cesar Oseguera. 

But with quick thinking and an understanding of the phrase ‘stranger, danger', the Oseguera’s say their little girl, who's only five years old, ran for her life. 

“It’s a good run for her. With him being right here in the driveway and her over here, you know he took off running after her and it was a race to the front door, both of them were going. She actually opened the door and locked the door right in his face," Niki said. 

Face-to-face with a bold attempted abductor… 

“She’s still in fear. She asks us daily has the man been caught," Niki said. 

…a scene these parents have played over and over since the December 16th incident. 

"Just the fear of knowing that that man came in our yard and got that close to my child and he could have taken her, oh it just kills me inside," Niki said. 

And now they have this warning. 

"Just encourage the parents to just watch their kids. Just be there with them, don’t leave them unattended at any time," Cesar said. 

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office are searching for two suspects, both described as black men, with one wearing a 'du-rag'. Officials describe their vehicle as a black Ford truck. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Jasper County Sheriff's Office immediately at (409) 384-5417.
