LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say nearly 50 detectives are canvassing a neighborhood for clues in the abduction of a 10-year-old girl who vanished from her bedroom this week and was found hours later miles from home.
Police are seeking two men who apparently took the girl from her home after 1 a.m. Wednesday and drove her around the San Fernando Valley. She was found that afternoon after being dropped off near a hospital.
Police officials have publicly said the girl had bruises and scratches and was in shock when she was found. The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/XKLN6P ) reports that law enforcement sources say she was sexually assaulted.
Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese says detectives are working around the clock on the case.
The Associated Press does not identify victims of sexual assault.
