Girl, 11, 'abducted' by masked motorist and 'dragged into woods' near park

AN 11-YEAR-OLD girl was 'abducted' by a masked motorist and 'dragged' into the woods in a park.

Police were called to reports that the schoolgirl had been 'snatched' in broad daylight from Park Hall Country Park in Stoke-on-Trent.

Officers are hunting a small white car seen in Pillar Close, Onsetter Road and Dividy Road in Bentilee at around 2.30pm on July 28.

One relative said in a social media post: "The guy knew what he was doing as he had a black scarf covering his face.

"He eventually dragged her into the woods at Park Hall and she was able to run and call for help. The police managed to get to her."

No arrests have yet been made, StokeonTrent Live reports.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We have received a report and officers are currently investigating. A girl is safe and well.

"We understand some people will be concerned but officers are continuing with their inquiries and will provide an update in due course."

Anyone who saw the girl in Bentilee or at Park Hall Country Park should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
