Police want to speak with drivers about incident involving young girl

Investigators in Abbotsford are still hoping for answers in the suspicious circumstances that occurred on Tuesday

The Abbotsford Police Department is continuing its investigation into a suspicious incident involving a young girl.

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) would like to speak with the drivers and passengers of two vehicles that were captured on security video in the area of a suspicious incident that took place Tuesday.

Const. Ian MacDonald said police have continued to investigate a report from a driver who saw a young girl in a pink jacket lying on the side of the road near Enterprise Avenue and McCallum Road at about 6:20 p.m. that day.

The driver said he saw a man pick up the girl and carry her in the direction of a treed area just west of that location.

The report resulted in police and members of Central Valley Search and Rescue searching the area until about 3 a.m. Wednesday.

MacDonald said police have not received any reports of missing young girls, and all girls enrolled in the school district have been accounted for.

“Nonetheless, we are still seeking definitive answer to ensure the well-being of the child involved and to explain the observations of the very credible witness,” he said.

MacDonald said investigators have reviewed security video in the area and would like to speak with the occupants of two cars that were travelling on Enterprise Avenue just after 6 p.m.

He said police hope these people might have seen something that could assist the investigation.

One vehicle is a full-sized white extended-cab pickup with a long box and a black bed liner that drove north on Turner Street and then west onto Enterprise.

The other vehicle is a red pick truck that drove east on Enterprise and turned north onto Turner.

The drivers and passengers are asked to immediately contact the APD at 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd).
