Person of Interest in 5-Year-Old's Abduction



    Person of Interest in 5-Year-Old's Abduction

    Authorities say they're looking for a "person of interest" in the abduction of a 5-year-old girl who was taken from her yard in Lancaster County last week before being let her out of the car hours later as two teenagers pursued on bikes.

    Investigators say the girl was abducted by a man offering to take her for ice cream as she played in the yard around 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Lancaster Township.

    Two hours later, amid a community search, police in nearby Manheim Township say two teenage boys spotted her inside a car. They began following on their bicycles; police say the driver eventually stopped and let her out before driving off.

    Manheim Township police Chief Neil Harkins and District Attorney Craig Stedman say they're pursing a "person of interest."

    Lancaster Township fire Chief Ron Comfort says the girl was “scared,” but had no obvious physical injuries, reported Lancaster Online.

    Anyone with information on the abduction is asked to contact police.
