Las Vegas related story

While playing Blackjack at Monte Carlo Friday night Dave stepped away from table and was on phone for quite a while. Sunday Night during dinner he revealed nature of phone call.

In exchange for going to Las Vegas, Dave's wife rented a beach house in Bodega Bay and took their 2 daughters, and a couple of friends and their kids. Late Friday afternoon 3 1/2 year old daughter called out "Mommy", the Mom being a good Mom went to see what was wrong and could not find her. After the three women searched the house without finding her one of the Mom's stayed inside to watch remaining children and the others went outside searching, house was near a path that led down a cliff to beach and many neighbors joined the search outside. Half hour later police help was enlisted and a search Helicopter was sent. Sheriff decided to ask for the dog unit to be sent since sunset was approaching when the Mom inside heard laughter in child's bedroom. The young daughter had started an impromptu game of Hide and Seek and was found curled up inside an ottoman storage compartment that no one knew was hollow. The Mom was upset and relieved but it was decided that the Sheriff would explain the seriousness of situation to young child as it would have greater impact as life lesson learned.
