LOUISIANA, Mo. | Authorities are scouring eastern Missouri for clues in the apparent abduction of a 4-year-old girl from the front yard of her home.
Police in the town of Louisiana say Alisa Maier was playing with her 5-year-old brother Monday night when a black four-door passenger car pulled up and took her away.
Authorities have issued an Amber Alert. Maier is described as 3 feet tall and 40 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jean shorts.
KSDK reports that police have only a vague description of the alleged abductor. He is possibly a white male with dark hair and maybe in his late teens or early 20's.
