Girl, 11, found safe after being abducted getting off school bus; 2 in custody: Police
Charlotte Moccia was apparently kidnapped after coming home from school.
Police in Massachusetts said an 11-year-old girl was found safe after she was apparently abducted after getting off the school bus on Wednesday afternoon.
Charlotte Moccia, of Springfield, was forced into a car at about 1:26 p.m. “not long after she got off her school bus,” according to Massachusetts State Police.
Springfield Police Department said just before 8 p.m. she was located. The Massachusetts State Police said the car was stopped at a work zone after a motorist called 911.
Two people were taken into custody and are being transported for booking, police said. Moccia was checked out by EMTs, but “has no apparent injuries.”
Authorities said a man was walking behind her and forced her into a dark blue or black Honda sedan, possibly a Civic. The car was being driven by a woman, according to police.
Charlotte is described as being 4-foot-2 and about 60 pounds and she was wearing her school uniform at the time.
She is a student at Hampden Charter School of Science, which issued a statement about her apparent kidnapping.
“I have some unsettling news to share with you and a request for help,” Tarkan Topcuoglu, the school’s superintendent, said in a release. “One of our students, 11-year-old Charlotte Moccia, may have been abducted this afternoon on her way home from school.”
“Obviously, we are concerned for Charlotte’s safety and will keep you up-to-date with any further developments,” the school added.
Police said anyone who sees Charlotte should immediately call 911.
