    CA - Santa Barbara - 11yo escapes poss. predator!

    http://www.ksby.com/Global/story.asp...&nav=menu544_1
    http://www.keyt.com/news/local/51341337.html <snipped> Santa Barbara Sheriff deputies received a report Monday afternoon, that a man driving a white van near Hartnett and Cane tried to lure an 11-year-old girl into his van.

    The girl said, the man pulled up to her and asked her to help him find a lost dog. The girl told sheriff officials that when she ran to a nearby home to call for help.

    Detectives say the suspect is in his 50's and was driving a white cargo van with two rear windows covered by curtains.


    Fellow Sleuthers: Please note that Salem discovered this incident and brought it to the Lindsey Baum forum as the poss. perp had WA plates. She has called LE on both sides of the issue. The link for that discussion is:

    Smart girl! Finally a happy story. Lost dog? POS!

    WA plates. Hope this guy is captured ASAP. Need to find out where this guy was when Lindsey Baum disappeared.

    WTG, Salem, for bringing it to LE's attention.

    LOST DOG? Really? Unreal. I am so happy this little baby is safe. The other day I was walkign home from abus stop and the sun was in my eyes as this car drove up next to me - a man was smiling and waving at me - i thought I knew this man, but the sun was in my eyes, I got near the car as the sun moved out of my line of vision - I didn't know him and he tried to grab my arm!

    I ran so fast! Didn't see his car or license plate but I am totally freaked out by it.
