FBI Releases Photo Of Vehicle From Cody Abduction
The FBI has released photos of a vehicle believed to be connected to the abduction and assault of an 11-year-old girl in Cody on Monday. Investigators believe the suspect was driving a 2004 or 2005 white Toyota SR-5 4-Runner.
An FBI spokesman said the cargo box seen in the surveillance photo has likely been removed. Officials had previously said the vehicle had gray leather front seats, and the rear area held a mattress, where the suspect was likely living.
The suspect is described as a white male, 55-60 years old, weighing between 185 and 200 pounds. He has white or short strawberry blonde hair and a trimmed facial hair. He was last seen wearing a blue jeans, a brown shirt and a tan baseball cap.
He is wanted in the abduction and assault of an 11-year-old girl he allegedly lured into his SUV outside the Park County Complex on Monday afternoon. The girl was released Monday night in a rural area and found by a party of hunters. Police say he asked the girl for help finding a missing puppy, then threatened her with a handgun, ordering her to get in the vehicle.
He is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is urged to contact police, or call the FBI National Tip Line at 1-800-225-5324.
