Amber Alert issued for 8-year-old Calif. girl
FRESNO, Calif. — California authorities have issued an Amber Alert for an 8-year-old Fresno girl who was apparently abducted from her front yard while playing with a friend.
The California Highway Patrol says Elisa Cardenas was taken around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
CHP Sgt. Trent Cross tells KRON-TV the girl was taken by a stranger who managed to lure her to his vehicle.
She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a light purple Winnie the Pooh sweat shirt.
Fresno police say the suspect is described as a male around 6-feet tall and in his 20s with a shaved head. He was wearing a white tank top and blue jean shorts and driving an older model, reddish brown Ford two-door pickup truck. The vehicle had a six-inch white stripe on it.
