Yvette was living with her father, Virgil Henley, age 28. However, Yvette’s grandparents Gary and Kim Forester went to court to seek custody, claiming that the child had been suffering “emotional damage” and stating that they feared that she was in danger. A judge overseeing the case granted the Forester’s custody, but Yvette wasn’t anywhere to be found.

Yvette’s dad is an avid gamer and met Harry Brown online a while ago. The two became friends on Facebook and chatted every now and again. The Foresters decided to reach out to Brown and ask him for his help in locating their granddaughter. They told him the whole story, offering a $2,000 reward, and he agreed to help.

Harry decided to order a pizza for Virgil and have it delivered to his motel room. He was able to get Virgil to spill the beans on where he had been staying, and Virgil even revealed his room number. While Virgil waited for his pizza to be delivered, Harry gave the motel information to the police.

A short while later, there was a knock on the door, but Virgil’s dinner wasn’t delivered. Instead, police were at the door. They were able to get Yvette out of the room and safely to her grandparents.

“I spend my life on the internet, but little did I know that talking to random people would lead to me finding this little girl. [Yvette] is loving where she is now. I cried so much when I saw the photos of her with her grandparents,” Harry said.
