Carmichael Parents On High Alert as Detectives Search for Child Abductor

CARMICHAEL -

Carmichael parents are still on high alert four days after an 8-year-old girl was abducted in the middle of the night while she was sleeping.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Detectives say the man who did it is still out there. They say they still don’t know who he is and are following up on leads from the public.

Mother Jessicca Moore worries for her 2-year-old.

“It stuns me that her parents can be home and the child can still be preyed on that way,” Moore said.

Detectives say the 8-year-old girl was taken into a wooded area near her home.  She returned back moments later. She described the man as around 6 feet tall with short, combed back brown hair and brown eyes.

All of this happened just about a mile away from where Moore lives.

“I’m paranoid as it is and then when I hear these stories, it makes my paranoia a lot worse,” said Moore.

She hopes detectives will soon catch the predator, but knows that still won’t ease her fears.

“There are so many predators out there that even if this one gets caught you always have to be worried as a parent that it could happen again,” said Moore.
