SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are searching a wooded area in northwest Salina after a girl said she was abducted.

Saline County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jim Hughes says the girl, who is about 10 years old, showed up at a house shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday, saying she’d been grabbed by a man and dragged into a wooded area. The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1LwxZsY ) reports that the girl told officers she was able to escape from her abductor.

The girl’s parents called police to report that she was missing soon after the people whose home the girl fled to called police.

Hughes estimated the girl was missing for only a few minutes.

Hughes says the girl appeared to be “shaken up.” He said he did not think she would require medical attention.
