"I was busy looking at a tag, Nahla was very little," the 50-year-old actress revealed of her now-9-year-old daughter. "She was there, I looked around, and she was not there. And you have that moment where I was like, 'Shut the store! Shut the doors!'

"I went right into nobody's leaving this place until I find out where my daughter is," she explained. "And it's just what happens. It's visceral."

Thankfully, for Berry, the scary moment was brief.
