They started calling, but no one answered. The next day, still no Coraline, so they called the police. Coraline's neighbor, Mildred, has a key to her house. Inside, it looked undisturbed except for the broken window.
Lorenzo was alone, making a fuss. So Mildred too him to her house. Liddie wanted to, but mom said it was time to go home.
