Police: Child Abducted by 2 Men, Possibly in Hudson Valley
An Amber Alert was issued for a child who police believe is in serious danger and could be somewhere in the Hudson Valley.
Malaya M. Johnson, 12, was abducted from Hudson Falls Wednesday afternoon. She was seen in a red two-door Ford Mustang with two unknown Hispanic males, police say.
The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that she is in imminent danger of serious physical injury or death, officials say.
It's believed Johnson was being taken to the Hudson Valley or New York City area. Her cellphone was pinged after she was reported missing near Sloatsburg in Rockland County, according to the Post Star.
Johnson has long brown hair with brown eyes. She's described as being 5'0" 115 pounds and was last seen wearing light red jeans, a white tank top and a light-colored backpack.
The red Mustang was found by the NYPD Thursday night, but the child is still missing, police say. It's believed her last sighting was near the Staten Island Ferry between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday.
Anyone with any information on this possible abduction is asked to call the Washington County Sheriffs Office at (866)NYS-AMBER or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting.
