FALSE REPORT: 10 Year-Old Girl Escapes Kidnapping

False reports of child abduction are becoming more and more common which is a very serious allegation and a disturbing trend (and in some cases a crime). Additionally, it is creating a very troubling dilemma for law enforcement and missing children agencies alike. Situations like this are the reason law enforcement can become hesitant when faced with similar reports, in what some citizens refer to as "they're not doing their job." Not the case. This is why there are strict protocols for AMBER Alerts and other investigative strategies. Due process is essential to a case. Policy and procedure must be followed to get to the bottom of these reports. Again, because of situations like this... Sad. While we are glad no child has been harmed in this hoax, we are extremely frustrated with the conclusion of this report. Updated 6/21/2013 @ 10:23 AM

FALSE REPORT. More Details Here

The young victim told police that while she was in the area of Beach Boulevard and Santa Rosa Avenue, a man approached her and told her she was coming with him, according to Pacifica Police Chief Jim Tasa.

When the girl refused, the man attempted to physically force her, but she punched him and was able to run away.

Police searched the area but did not capture the suspect, who was last seen on Santa Rosa Avenue, running toward Palmetto Avenue.

Police released a sketch of the suspect (pictured above) who was described as a white male adult, 30 to 40 years old, with brown hair. He was 6 feet tall with a stocky build and a tan complexion, wearing blue jeans, a red checkered shirt and black shoes.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identification is asked to call the Pacifica Police Department at 650-738-7314.
