Cody police looking for leads in child abduction case
Police say an 11-year-old girl from Cody who was the subject of an Amber Alert was sexually assaulted.
Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam says the girl was coerced into a van at the Park County Complex at about 4:30 Monday afternoon. The girl was later found walking down a nearby mountain road by a group of hunters.
Authorities say that the man who abducted the girl sexually assaulted her. Rockvam says they are still looking for the suspect.
He is a white male, 6-1 to 6-2, stocky build, white short hair and white trimmed beard. There is an update and change on the vehicle description. It was a white SUV, possibly a suburban . It had two seats in the front and was open in the back.
Rockvam says the man was wearing a brown shirt, blue jeans and a tan baseball cap. The girl was taken to the Carter mountain area and they are hopeful that someone saw the vehicle.
He adds that the F-B-I and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation have been called in to assist. He says anyone with information should contact the Cody Police Department.
