LA police release suspect's name in abduction case

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles police have released the name and photo of a man they say is a suspect in the abduction of a 10-year-old girl who vanished from her San Fernando Valley home last week and was found hours later wandering at a strip mall several miles away.

Authorities identified the man on Saturday as 30-year-old Tobias Dustin Summers. They say he is a child-kidnapping suspect.

Authorities also released a photo of Summers.

Dozens of detectives have worked around the clock looking for clues in the case since the 10-year-old girl was abducted from her home on Wednesday.

She was found hours later, scratched and barefoot, wandering near a Starbucks coffee shop.

Police say she had been dumped in front of a nearby hospital.
