Grandfather Frantically Searched For Girl Sleeping in Suitcase

Panic sets in the second a parent can't find their child, but for one British family that feeling led to an all out search involving the police and a helicopter.

When the frantic search didn't turn up any signs, an officer went upstairs and found the child moving in the suitcase.

My son loves to hide. He has no qualms with the dark so he has done this to us a few times. It really freaks me out.

I apparently did something similar when I was really young.My mum went to work and I stayed home with my dad & his friend who were watching TV.I was playing under the sofa and fell asleep and they were looking for me and calling my name but I didn't hear a thing. He called my mum and eventually they found me. Must have been so scary for them!

My sister LOVED to do this with cupboards. It was her favorite way of freaking my mom and me out.

Wow, that must have been terrifying! Glad it worked out better than the three little boys who shut themselves in a trunk in the front yard and died while police and family were searching high and low for them. :(
