    The intruder was in the family's basement searching through things when he came upon the girl sleeping in her bedroom, Carriger said. The suspect took her out of bed and carried her upstairs, making noises that woke the parents.

    Dad ran out into the front yard and confronted the kidnapper who released the girl. Police with dogs arrested Troy Morley of Roy, UT, 48 yo, in a house a couple of blocks away. He had entered the second house through a doggy door trying to hide.

    I keep thinking that if the kidnapper had not made the noise which woke up the parents, we would have had another case with a mysterious disappearance of a child in the middle of the night with no clues to go on.
    With him being 48 years old, it makes me wonder if he has done something like this before.

    Reading that article, dogs were very much some of the biggest heroes in this case!

    I took out a chunk in the middle, but all the words are attributed to her.

    Some people do have complete, finished basements. I see basement rooms a lot on home improvement channels- including for children.

    It's really no different than having a bedroom on the main floor and kids on the second.
