Police say impounded car in New Hampshire not linked to Jessica Ridgeway kidnapping

CONCORD, N.H. - New Hampshire police say a car impounded in Portsmouth has no link to the disappearance of a 10-year-old Colorado girl one week ago.

   The Buick station wagon bearing Colorado license plates was towed from behind a Portsmouth shopping plaza Thursday morning.

   The car was one of hundreds of leads being pursued in the search for Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster, Colo. -- who was last seen by her mother walking to school Oct. 5.

   Portsmouth police said the car matches the description of the one a Dexter, Maine, resident spotted, carrying a passenger who resembled Jessica.

   Police say they have returned the car to its owners.
