FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Police in California say an 8-year-old Fresno girl who was apparently abducted while playing in her front yard has been found safe.
Police spokesman Jeff Cardinale made the announcement Tuesday morning, about 11 hours after Elisa Cardenas disappeared and triggered a statewide Amber Alert.
Cardinale says authorities have detained a possible suspect.
Authorities say Elisa was playing with six other girls when a stranger approached them and managed to lure her into his truck. The vehicle was caught on surveillance video, and authorities found the suspect in the truck matching the description.
Cardinale says the little girl didn't appear to have any physical injuries but was being evaluated at the hospital.
