The child, Pricella Ristick, has not been seen since her uncle reported to police that she slipped away while they were having pizza at a Little Caesar's in Lilburn on Sunday evening. He said she may have gotten into a white van outside the shopping center with a woman named Nancy. Surveillance video showed the suspected white van outside the shopping center.
She said Pricella, who is home-schooled, helped the family sell flowers at the shopping center on Indian Trail Road. She said that's where her daughter met a woman named Nancy about a week ago.
A few hours after Pricella disappeared, her mother said she got a phone call from her.
"She told me, 'Mom, I can't get away,'" she recalled, as her eyes watered.
"I told her 'Come home. Try to figure out a way out of there,' and she said 'I can't. I don't know where I am,'" Julia Ristick told Channel 2's Manuel Bojorquez.
Julia Ristick said she was telling her daughter to call 911 when the call ended.
Police said since they cannot confirm the girl left on her own accord, they are investigating this as a kidnapping and trying to find leads. They said they will review surveillance video for more information.
