Vigo County Police Looking For Man Who Abducted Teen

Last updated on Tuesday, December 24, 2013

(TERRE HAUTE) - Authorities in western Indiana are searching for two men in connection with the abduction of a 15-year-old girl.

Vigo County Chief Deputy Clark Cottom says the girl answered her door for what she believed as a package delivery Sunday evening, but the man at the door tried to grab her.

She fled into the house, with the man following her, and when she ran back outside, a second man flashed a knife at her, and both men forced her into a van.

Cottom says the girl was in the van for an undetermined amount of time before being released near her home. She later was treated at a hospital.

The girl told officers the men both were white and in their mid-20s to early 30s.
