Can you please say an ‘attempted abduction’? She was not abducted then escaped, someone attempted to abduct her and she ran and avoided it. Thank goodness! But please be more accurate when writing and giving titles to articles such as this. They are scary enough without misrepresenting what actually happened. It is far more helpful to readers when you clearly and accurately describe what happened than when you try to write a piece that will grab everyone’s attention, albeit with the wrong information.

She avoided or eluded abduction-kudos to her! But ‘escape’ means to break loose from confinement or to get free. Point is, words mean things and journalists should be very careful how they use them. Somtimes all people read is a headline.

Expecting clarity from our media is not ‘paranoia’. Maybe annoyed is a more accurate term.

Bullseye,…. “Escape” also means to elude and avoid. The journalist that wrote the article was right and you are WRONG.
Look up the definition.
