CARE Alert Issued for Child Abduction

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is requesting that the media provide the public with the following information to assist law enforcement efforts in locating a possible abducted child.

On March 12, 2009 at about 5:15 p.m. an elementary-aged child reported witnessing a man taking a child from outside an elementary school in Canoga Park and driving away with her.

The child is described as a possible white female about 8-9 years old, with shoulder length brown hair.  The little girl was described as wearing a pink tank top with black or blue Capri pants.   

The suspect is described as a male Black, 30-35 years of age wearing tan bagging pants, a blue hoodie sweatshirt and a black beanie on his head.
 
The suspect’s vehicle is described as a possible 1970’s Ford Blue van with pink and green graffiti on it.  It also has damage on the passenger side along with a broken right passenger window.

The investigation is on-going but thus far, no child matching that description has been reported missing and an abduction has not been confirmed.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Topanga Are Watch Commander at 818-756-4800.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “CRIMES” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web Tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  All calls and contacts are anonymous.
