The potential victim, a black girl believed to be between six and 11 years old with longer locked hair, was sitting in the backseat with two other subjects while another pumped gas at Jon White Gas Station, 1 Hall St. SW.

He and the other potential suspects were in a tan or gray colored Buick, according to witnesses.  No license plate was identified, and it was last seen heading north on Division Street.
