Calaveras County authorities have released the sketch of a man suspected of trying to abduct a girl near Valley Springs Elementary School earlier in September.
According to a release from the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department, deputies showed up to the school around 4:45 p.m. back on Sept. 11 after a 14-year-old reported that a man had tried to abduct her.
Using information the girl gave them, deputies have been able to sketch out a profile of the suspect. Along with the sketch, authorities note that the man’s hair was dark in the front and faded to a lighter color on the back.
The man was reportedly wearing a faded grey t-shirt and blue jeans at the time of the abduction. His car – a heavily scratched, burgundy colored, older model sedan – had Oregon plates, deputies say.
Anyone with information about who the suspect in the sketch may be is asked to call the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office at (209) 754-6500.
