    There is an eye in the sky directly on the corner of 18th and Otis so if this is indeed the kidnap location, the footage should be posted on the MPD Youtube page shortly.

    Child in a dispute over visitation? Doesn’t sound like a random snatch & grab.

  • kittycatbob

    Can we get a description of who was kidnapped?

    • oh2dc

      Right. The information is rather lacking in this alert. “White vehicle” is rather vague, too.

      • Bob sacamento
