LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 20 Los Angeles police detectives are hunting for two men who grabbed a 10-year-old girl from her San Fernando Valley bedroom before dawn Wednesday and held her for nearly 12 hours.
Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith asked for the public's help in finding the men Thursday, saying investigators believe the men took the girl to several locations in different cars before dropping her off at a hospital six miles from her home.
One man is described as an 18-year-old white male and police have no description of the other man.
The girl's parents reported her missing just before 4 a.m. Wednesday and she was found when someone who recognized her from media reports spotted her outside a Starbucks shop and summoned nearby officers.
