Amber Alerts: TO: OUTDOOR TRAINERS, RUNNERS, ENTHUSIASTS, CLIMBERS, HIKERS, SKIERS, RUNNERS AND MORE

PLEASE PASS THIS ON. When it comes to keeping a lookout, outdoor fitness, sports and training enthusiasts cover lots of ground, terrain, streets and other paths. That’s why I’m re-posting and linking to information to become familiar with the Jessica Ridgeway case, and other recent attempted or active abduction facts so that more eyes and ears can expand the lookout beyond the limits of current searches.Below are descriptive facts on more than one case in the region.

Click here for continually updated blog on latest in authorities’ attempts to bring Jessica Ridgeway’s murderer to justice.

Also, here are links to relatively recent incidents of attempted or active child abductions together with descriptions of vehicles or persons where available. Any of the facts noted may lead to discoveries that could protect children and help law enforcement. One happened Monday in Cody, Wyoming and the FBI is studying that one for similarities.

Cody, Wyoming abduction: Arrested.

Arvada, Colorado attempts: royal blue sedan; link to story for composite sketch.

Iowa abuction: similar age, gender to Jessica. Active case over 2 months since disappearances.

Sheridan, Colorado attempted abduction of 2 year old in June. White van and see story for sketch of suspect.

You may find other attempted or active abduction stories by your own research. Be advised, children aren’t the only ones, in 2010 at Ketner Lake in Westminster, Colorado, a man reportedly tried to abduct an adult female runner using a chemical on a cloth.

    • No doubt. There seems to have been several of these attempts in the region in recent months. There is a ray of hope in a possible sighting of a girl matching Jessica Ridgeway’s description in a blue station wagon with Colorado plates in central Maine as of Sunday. There would have been time to make the trip. I’ve contacted a few Maine wordpressers to pass on her description and the alert to be looking for this vehicle and girl.

      Even if the girl in Maine turns out to be Jessica Ridgeway, It still makes sense for outdoor enthusiasts to keep a lookout for described missing persons and other case facts from other cases in the region. Could save a life and prevent future victims.

  1. What a letdown to hear that Jessica has been confirmed the victim of a murderer. I am deeply saddened that anyone could be so selfish as to disturb, much less victimize a child, or anyone else for that matter. As a culture and civilization, we have much work to do to change conditions that allow for this to happen.
