LONGMONT, Colo. - Longmont police investigated an unconfirmed report of a child abduction near Burlington Elementary School Tuesday, but stopped their work on the case for the night.
The investigation began about 3:50 p.m. after a girl, described as being between ages 9 and 11, approached several teens near South Main and Quail streets and told them, "Can you help me, that guy took my baby sis."
The girl pointed to a brown sedan or sport utility vehicle that may have had roof rack and was last seen traveling northbound on South Pratt Parkway, said Longmont Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur.
The teens told the girl to seek help from an adult, Satur said.
Now police can't find the girl, who was last seen running west into Kanemoto Park. She is described being about 4-feet-2-inches tall and was wearing a purple top with pink or green horizontal stripes and brown capri shorts. She had messy brown hair that was tied in the back.
There are currently no reports of a missing child, but police were at a park interviewing the teenagers who reported the incident.
Police left the area and broke down their mobile command center around 8:30 p.m.
Satur said police are asking any parent, who has at least two daughters who attend Burlington Elementary or Indian Peaks Elementary, to call the police department at 303-651-8501 if their daughter matches the girl's description.
Satur said police have no description for the reportedly missing "baby" sister. The school district has sent out a school-wide notification to parents at both schools.
