On June 11, 2023, at approximately 12:00PM, seven-year-old child and a nine-year-old child left an apartment in the 1500 block of Argentia Drive.

As they were walking, the two children were approached by a black male, approximately 30 years old, short dark hair, in a gray crossover type vehicle with spots of color missing. The man offered a ride to the children, who get into the car.

The suspect drives them to a nearby store in the area of West Kiest Boulevard at South Polk Street.

At around 12:15 pm, the nine-year old went to the door of a store, and when they turned around to come back to the car, the suspect left the location with the seven-year-old.
