While mother was working in the fields, her young daughter, age 3, disappeared. When she found it, the girl had crossed a small dangerous wooden bridge - a feat quite impossible of such a young one.
She must have been taken away by a Tengu.

In another family, a baby would not stop crying, so the mother told him "I will give you away to the Tengu!" and held him outside the window.
There she heard a voice: "All right, let me have him!" and the baby was taken out of her arms and became invisible. It was never found.

Sometimes he is found munching wheat straw, thinking they were earthworms.

If a child gets lost and does not come home any more, people of old thought it was taken away by a Tengu or Yamanokami.
So they took bells and gongs and went to the mountain forest to search.
Once a child got lost while playing "hide and seek" till late in the evening and thought it was taken away by Yamanokami !

Once a young man suddenly disappeared and the villagers, thinking he was abducted by a Tengu, went looking to him for no avail. After more than 15 days he came back, with torn robes and almost out of his wits. He had walked around the mountains with a Tengu, slept with the Tengu during the daytime and the Tengu had given him food during this time
