OVERLAND PARK, Kan. A $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the safe return of 18-year-old Kelsey Smith, who was forced into her car at a Target store on Saturday.
"Every indication is, its been an abduction," Overland Park Police Chief John Douglas told FOX News on Tuesday. "So far, our best information is coming from the surveillance video."
Police viewed the footage Monday. The video shows Smith, of Overland Park, Kan., leaving the store around 7:10 p.m. She had put pac

I’ll be surprised if they don’t find this guy in the next 24 hours, if not sooner. Somebody saw the news, saw the video, and knows who it is.
Not too many victims walk away from #2.

I pray you're correct. It is getting a lot of local coverage here in Kansas City area. Like I stated previously, this is in my neighborhood...

I missed your post to that effect. Whenever something like this happens here the local news outlets go all out trying to help.
Libertarians don’t condone abductions for any purpose. There are adult men and women who freely choose to participate in pornographic films and photos, and in prostitution, and they should be free to do that (and required to bear the burden of any negative consequences of their actions). That has nothing to do with abductions or coercions, which are obviously the antithesis of liberty.
I hear ya. My 18 yo blond and blue daughter is the same.
(It's always his fault)...
Welcome to FR. I think you might like it here, (we did warn you it’s addictive)...
Per the article you posted: “Surveillance video of this individual shows a male in his 20s, with closely cropped dark hair and facial hair on his chin. He was wearing black shorts, a white T-shirt, black Converse sneakers and what appeared to be a long, gold necklace. The man who rushed toward Smith in the surveillance video is wearing similar clothing.” Two pieces of video footage: one showing someone’s face pretty clearly, the other not showing a face, but right around the same time and similar enough in size and dress that it could easily be the same person.
Honestly, if the man whose face is shown in that video hasn’t turned himself in to police by now to clear himself, he’s almost certainly the perp. Since the story is apprently getting wall to wall media coverage in the local area, it’s really implausible that the guy whose face is shown doesn’t know that he’s being sought by police.
He looks really, really young.
Yeah. Every rational person believes in their heart-of-hearts that the police would never railroad them for a easy conviction.
Kansas -— Kelsey Smith bump
With that clear a photo and a precise time to accompany it, it’s pretty clear he’ll be identified and found. Someone who reports to police voluntarily after seeing his photo distributed in this context is a lot less likely to get railroaded than somebody who doesn’t.
