Woman shares warning after discovering shirt on windshield

She then became uneasy when she noticed one of the two cars parked near her was running.

Ashley Hardacre of Flint, Mich. posted a picture on Facebook of a flannel shirt that was wrapped around the windshield wiper of her auto as she left her job at a local mall.

I used my windshield wipers to try to get them off but the shirt was completely wrapped around my wiper blade.

"I drove around the building to get to a safer place because my mom had told me about human trafficking and how this was something they could actually use to lure you in", Ashley told WNEM. Once drivers get out of the vehicle or truck to remove the item, the criminals make their move on the distracted victim. "A lot of people are thankful that I am spreading awareness and allowing others to know that this is a serious situation and can happen to anyone", she said. I really can't think of another reason as to why someone would put it on my auto.

Hardacre's post has had more than 100,000 shares.

Once inside, she realised a shirt had been thrown across her windshield and tucked under her windscreen wiper.

NASA Just Discovered Seven Earth-Like Worlds
Seven Earth-like planets have been found orbiting a sun not too far - in space terms, at least - from our own. Trappist-1 is a dwarf star that's about a tenth the mass of our Sun and a thousandth as bright.

Hardacre later spoke with CBS News and reiterated that this thing "a lot of people think ... is fake" is something her mother had warned about.

Flint Township Police Department Detective Sgt. Brad Wangler told CBS News that he got in touch with the 19-year-old after seeing her Facebook post.

Nothing like this has ever happened before. "There have been no other incidents like this". People in states all over the country have tagged loved ones warning them to be cautious of objects on their windshields.

Eric Almoney: "OMG so glad you're safe".

"I posted about the incident to inform others that it can happen to anyone and that they shouldn't fall for it". "As women, we need to be a little more aware of our surroundings and make sure that we know what we're walking into, just even our own house or our own auto". "It's kind of unknown as to what or why or who [did this]".

Authorities are reviewing surveillance video to see whether something nefarious was afoot.
