Police Say Impounded Car Not Linked To Kidnapping
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a car impounded in Portsmouth has no link to the disappearance of a 10-year-old Colorado girl one week ago.
The Buick station wagon bearing Colorado license plates was towed from behind a Portsmouth shopping plaza Thursday morning.
The car was one of hundreds of leads being pursued in the search for Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster, Colo. — who was last seen by her mother walking to school Oct. 5.
Portsmouth police said the car matches the description of the one a Dexter, Maine, resident spotted, carrying a passenger who resembled Jessica.
Police say they have returned the car to its owners.
