A terrified mother sought help from Gary, Ind. police and local media after she received a chilling letter that threatened two of her six kids, according to a report by The Root.

Alfreda Murphy found a letter in her mailbox postmarked June 6 that contained only 60 words.

“You have two lovely daughters,” the letter starts, referencing Murphy’s two oldest daughters. “I and my friend have watched them every since they moved in.”

Murphy locked her children inside her home and called both the police and the local CBS affiliate, hoping the heightened attention would protect her children.

The unidentified author of the letter detailed where Murphy’s children played just days before.

“I and my friend have watched them ever since they moved in,” the note declares. “[We] almost had them on Thursday evening, will keep trying … Thank you!”

It included no name or signature.

“They’re sending letters saying that they’re watching my kids and they almost had them this week,” she told the news station.

Murphy was taking no chances that the letter was a prank, she said.

“This is serious.”

The family only moved into the house two months ago.

“We will get them,” the letter states.

Gary police are investigating. They held the letter as evidence as they try to figure out who sent the note.

Murphy said she is terrified to let her children out of her sight.
