Child who yelled 'stranger danger' is safe at home; man was her dad

The truth has come out about a story shared thousands of times on social media Halloween evening. 

A little girl who was overheard yelling "stranger danger" while leaving a Southfield store with a man was not in any danger. Turns out the man was actually the little girl's father. 

The incident was reported to police as the pair was seen walking out of a Burlington store in Southfield, and the girl was visibly upset and yelling for help. 

People were concerned she was being abducted and a surveillance photo of the two of them quickly circulated on social media. 

However, police confirm the girl was never in any danger and is safe at home.
