    CA - AMBER ALERT - Elisa Cardenas, age 8, Fresno, 5 October 2010

    Saw this go out on the TV a couple minutes ago, interrupted broadcast for emergency alert message. Right now sounds like a possible stranger abduction. NorCal and Central Valley residents on the road should keep an eye out.

    Fresno police have issued an Amber Alert for an 8-year-old Fresno girl, Elisa Cardenas, who they believe has been kidnapped. They will be holding a news conference shortly.

    A call came in at 8:28 p.m. concerning an incident on the 2700 block of East Almond in central Fresno.

    The girl was with a group of six other girls at the time of the abduction.

    [snip]

    The Fresno Police Department is working with a sex offenders unit in an attempt to determine the kidnapper's identity.

    Child Kidnapped in Fresno - KMJ NOW
    http://www.kmjnow.com/pages/landing_...717&feedID=806
    Authorities said the suspect exposed himself to two children a few blocks away from the kidnapping scene -- then drove to the Mariposa and Hammond area where two girls -- one of them Elisa -- were playing in their front yard.

    He tried to lure them into his vehicle, but one of the girls ran inside.

    The suspect then got out of his pick-up and promised Elisa Cardenaz he would take her to the store. She got into the pick-up, which then sped off.

    Family members ran out of the house and tried to pursue, but the vehicle got away.

    An Amber Alert was issued later in the evening.

    KFSN-TV: Amber Alert issued for 8-year-old Elisa Cardenaz - abc30.com
    http://abclocal.go.com/kfsn/story?se...cal&id=7706343
    Police say the girl was playing in the front yard of her home with another little girl when a man in a pickup drove up.

    He spoke in Spanish and told the girls to get in. He apparently told the girls he would take them to the Dollar Store and buy them toys and coloring books.

    One girl ran into the house, and brought out another family member. At the same time the man in the pickup got out and grabbed Elisa.

    He drove off pursued by family members on foot. The girl's mother Leonor Cardenas tried to follow the pickup in her car, but was unable to catch him.

    Police say they received report only minutes earlier of a man exposing himself to little girls just a few blocks away. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says the man and his vehicle matched the description of the abductor.

    Dyer says more than one hundred officers are on duty looking for the child. An Amber Alert has been issued, and Dyer says the FBI will be coming in to assist.

    The State of Nevada has also activated their Amber Alert for the child as they are believed to be traveling to the Reno area. No explanation was given as to why they are believed to be traveling to Nevada.

    Nurse, I'm not seeing a live link. Could be lack of coffee on my part though.

    How terrifying. What a beautiful child.

    ETA: Thanks for the link!

    This is truly the first stranger abduction to occur since he's been chief, 9 years. Usually a releationship, parent, family member, etc.

    Stranger abduction, wouldn't say how/what but Elisa was lured to the car.

    Beautiful child - hope they get this offender ASAP.
    Please think long and hard before calling a child a 'run-a-way':
    You might be giving a 'perk' to the 'perp'.
