? The abducted child must be 17 years of age or younger.
? The local law enforcement agency must believe that the child has been abducted, that is, unwillingly taken from their environment without permission from the child’s parent or legal guardian or by the child’s parent or legal guardian who commits an act of murder or attempted murder during the time of the abduction.
? The local law enforcement agency must believe that the missing child is in immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death.
? The local law enforcement agency must confirm that an investigation has taken place that verifies the abduction and has eliminated alternative explanations for the missing child.
? Sufficient information is available to disseminate to the public that could assist in locating the child, the suspect, or the vehicle used in the abduction.

Glad she was located unharmed.

Now that *that's* out of the way, two things immediately jumped out at me:

1) That girl's not too substantial (5'3", 120lbs [though the weight is possibly an estimate]).
2) Her [I'm assuming] alleged abductor didn't have too much on her in the height/weight categories.

Not that any of that actually *means* anything; just an observation.
