A 7-year-old girl kidnapped on a Northridge street while playing with friends was found several hours later at a bar, police said Wednesday.

Police continued the search Wednesday for her abductor.

Initial reports indicated the child had not been harmed. Authorities later determined that she had been sexually assaulted, said Officer Kevin Maiberger of the LAPD Media Relations Section.

The girl was located at 11:47 p.m. Tuesday at Canoga Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard, about a mile from where she was last seen, said Sgt. Maria St. Pierre of the Los Angeles Police Department's Devonshire Station. Detectives believe an abductor dropped off the 7-year-old at the intersection before fleeing, St. Pierre said. http://www.nbc4.tv/news/5058523/detail.html
