NORTH RIDGEVILLE- Some residents here are concerned after police paid a visit to their neighborhood Memorial Day asking questions about an April 2015 abduction case.
“It definitely makes me think and makes me nervous,” said Miranda Mykytiak. “After the police came around I hooked up our security system and installed a fence.”
In the 2015 North Ridgeville case, the girl was taken from her home by a white male in dark clothing. The girl was able to get away. No arrests have been made.
Sources tell Fox 8 the case has been sent to the FBI to determine if it’s connected to the recent abduction of a 6-year-old Cleveland girl and other attempted abductions of young girls in Lorain County.
The FBI would not say if they believe the case in North Ridgeville is connected to the other abductions but said they are not ruling anything out until the individual is in custody.
“We are very well aware of other cases in our area,” said Vicki Anderson, FBI special agent.
The FBI released a sketch of a person of interest that they want to talk to in connection with the Cleveland abduction.
The person is believed to have been seen in the neighborhood near where the 6-year-old was abducted in Cleveland on May 21.
Anyone with information on any of the cases is asked to call police or the FBI as soon as possible.
