COPY-Suspect in custody, abducted girl still missing

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Police have a suspect in custody in the abduction of a 10-year-old girl in southwest Missouri, but the girl remains missing.

Springfield police released a statement just before midnight Wednesday saying dozens of officers were still searching for Hailey Owens, but that a man had been taken into custody on kidnapping charges.

The suspect's name hasn't been released. Police say he was found inside a vehicle at a local home.

Witnesses told investigators a man in a gold-colored 2008 Ford Ranger drove down the street several times before approaching Hailey and pulling her into his truck around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Amber Alerts were issued in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.

Hailey is 5-foot-2, about 90 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was wearing jean shorts and purple sandals.
