Update For August 20 2009
Oshkosh Police Trying to Solve or Explain Reported Abduction

Oshkosh police on Thursday asked anyone who was in the area of Linwood Avenue and Walnut Street around 10:30 Wednesday morning to contact officers as officers try to explain what happened that led to a reported abduction.

For many hours, an Amber Alert ran across TV screens notifying the public of a girl Oshkosh police say was abducted Wednesday morning near Oshkosh North High School.

The police department says it has checked out dozens of tips but nothing has developed into a “substantial lead” and no one has reported a child missing.

A statement from the police department says police “are appealing to anyone that was involved in any situation … that could have been misinterpreted as being a violent encounter or abduction to please call.”

“We are only interested in identifying a possible explanation to this alleged incident and help us to resolve this investigation and set the community at ease,” crime prevention officer Joseph Nichols said.

According to police, an eleven-year-old boy saw two men get out of a car and pull a black girl, who appeared to be 12 to 14 years old, into their car in the 1100-block of Linwood Avenue near Walnut Street around 10:30.

The car is a maroon, older model, boxy four-door. It’s dirty and very rusty with holes on the driver’s side. There is a dent or “smudge” on the rear bumper. The license plate had the number 2 in it.

It was driven by a black male with a black and a white man as passengers. According to the witness, the passengers got out and hit the girl on the head, bound her hands, and pulled her into the car.

One of the black men wore a white tank top and ripped jean shorts. The white man had blonde hair, wore shorts and basketball shoes, and had a tattoo on his right calf.

The girl is described as about five feet tall and thin. She was wearing a pink tank top, orange shorts, and a gold headband. Source

Law enforcement officials statewide are searching for a girl who was abducted Wednesday morning.

Authorities have now issued an Amber Alert after the reported abduction near Oshkosh North High School this morning.

According to police, a witness saw two men get out of a car and pull a black girl, who is approximately 12 to 14 years old, into their car in the 1100-block of Linwood Avenue near Walnut Street around 10:30.

The car is a maroon, older model, boxy four-door. It’s dirty and very rusty with holes on the driver’s side. There is a dent or “smudge” on the rear bumper. The license plate had the number 2 in it.

It was driven by a black male with a black and a white man as passengers. The passengers are the ones who got out and grabbed the girl, bound her hands, and pulled her into the car.

One of the black men wore a white tank top and ripped jean shorts. The white man had blonde hair, wore shorts and basketball shoes, and had a tattoo on his right calf.

The girl is described as about five feet tall and thin. She was wearing a pink tank top, orange shorts, and a gold headband. The child’s identity is not known at this time.

All this information comes from one witness — an eleven-year-old boy who says he saw the whole thing.

The boy says he was in his back yard picking tomatoes at the time. “I looked and I saw a girl and I said ‘hi’ to her.”

He says after the girl walked another block, a maroon car pulled up near her.

“Two men came out of the car — one standing by the door, the other hit her in the head and then bound her together then put her in the car, and then another person helped get her in the car and then they sped off,” he said.

The witness’s mother said he “ran in the house and said, ‘Mom, call 911. Someone has been taken from our street.'”

Police quickly responded and interviewed people in the area.

One neighbor just 30 feet away from the alleged abduction says he sat by an open window all morning and didn’t hear a thing.

“I question him. No screams, no tires pealing out, no noise whatsoever. If we would have heard tires squealing, we would have heard that right away,” neighbor David Schwartz said.

Police continue their search. Around 1:30 they issued an Amber Alert hoping the public can help them find the missing girl.

So far no one has reported a child missing and we do not know the name of the victim.

The young witness said he would recognize the two men if he saw them again.
