TikTok might mostly be annoying dances and trends that make us all feel really old, but a viral video on the platform has resulted in a missing girl being found.

A missing North Carolina teenager used TikTok hand signals from a video that shows you what to do when you’re in danger.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office in Kentucky confirmed the unnamed girl was inside a silver Toyota car when someone passing saw the 16-year-old using hand signals known on TikTok “to represent violence at home — I need help — domestic violence.”

The citizen immediately called the police and told them that the girl was in distress.

The hand signals and quick-thinking bystander’s actions led to the arrest of James Herbert Brick of Cherokee, 61, from North Carolina.
