Oct 12, 2012 - The Associated Press
CODY -- Authorities are asking for the public's help locating an SUV linked to the abduction and sexual assault of a girl in Cody.
The FBI said Thursday that based on witness statements and video footage from cameras around town, the vehicle is believed to be a 2004 or 2005 white, four-door Toyota SR-5 4-Runner, with a removable rooftop cargo box that's silver on top and black underneath.
Cody police have said a man lured an 11-year-old girl into his SUV Monday by claiming he needed help finding a missing puppy. The man threatened the girl with a pistol and sexually assaulted her before releasing her.
Authorities say the suspect is a white man, between 55 and 60, weighing 185 to 200 pounds, with short, light hair and trimmed facial hair.
