    They seem to have some pretty specific info on "Ben" for not knowing who he is...

    24 year old Pacific Islander male, 5'9", 140 pounds, black hair.

    Is this man an acquaintance? Was she playing with a group of kids when this guy came up? What the heck is going on here? This is scary. I'm about 10 miles south of Federal Way, so I'll keep my eyes open.

    Hopefully she is found quickly. If not, I'll take posters around in the morning.

    The update said she walked back to her home at 10:30 pm and they did not know yet where she had been. I hope she wasn't assaulted and then dropped off. I mean at least she is home safe now, but it is still worrisome, imo.

    It also says this "Ben" fellow had been taking pictures of children at the park for the past few days. I hope they find this creeper regardless of whether he harmed Karli or not... but I hope he did not.

    I wonder if he got spooked by the AMBER Alert and took her back?

    Arrest in abduction of Federal Way girl

    Police made an arrest Tuesday in the abduction of an 8-year-old Federal Way girl. Her disappearance from a playground next to her school led to a statewide Amber Alert Monday night.

    The person of interest is a 28-year-old Tacoma man. He was arrested at his home. Police say he attempted to escape during a search.

    [snip]

    Federal Way Police said it's a classic case of grooming, in which the person of interest took the girl to a department store, likely to buy her gifts.
