People Thought Car Looked Suspicious. Missing 10-Year-Old Girl Was Inside

Dion Merrick had a weird feeling in the early morning hours as he travelled his route along Burton Plantation Highway in the St. Martin Parish of Louisiana.

Something about a lone silver car in a patchy grass field didn't seem right, he said in a Facebook Live.

Merrick turned to his co-worker, Brandon Antoine, and told him that the car looked like the one described in an Amber Alert, Antoine later recounted to ABC News. A 10-year-old girl hadn't been seen since Sunday afternoon and authorities said she may have been with a man in a silver 2012 Nissan Altima.

Merrick called 911 and blocked the car from escaping the field with his blue Pelican Waste & Debris garbage truck.

Police arrived at the scene within minutes of the call, rescuing Jalisa Lasalle and arresting her alleged captor, 33-year-old Michael Sereal.

In live-streamed video of police at the scene, Merrick is heard expressing relief that Lasalle was found, saying a higher power led him to act on a hunch he hopes others will take more seriously. His and Antoine's emotions seemed to range from disbelief about the events of the morning, to gratitude that they were able to help a child.

Lasalle was crying for joy when she was rescued, according to Antoine's commentary in the background of the video.

"If you look at [the] woods and stuff, anything could've went on," Merrick said. "If you see something that's not right . . . you call 911."

Merrick and Antoine couldn't be reached for comment.

Pelican CEO Roddie Matherne told the outlet in a statement that the company was extremely proud of Merrick and Antoine.
