An 12-year-old girl abducted Tuesday morning in Lyndon in Cattaraugus County is “in imminent danger of serious bodily harm or death,” State Police while issuing an Amber Alert.
A 16-year-old and an 18-year-old took the girl, police said. They were believed to be driving a stolen, red Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with New York license plates CXA5836 and carrying two handguns.
The girl was identified as McKenzie R. Wilson, who was described as a white female, about 5-foot-6 and weighing about 100 pounds. She has straight blonde hair and blue eyes.
“It’s unknown if she can leave on her own free will,” State Police James O’Callaghan told reporters at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.
The youths all go to the same school, O’Callaghan said. They did not leave a note or any indication of where they may be headed.
The 18-year-old was identified as Joshua R. Monette. He is described as a white male, about 6-foot-2 and 140 pounds. He has short, black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket, blue jeans, boots, a black shirt and carrying a black duffel bag.
The 16-year-old was identified as John Harvey, 16. He was described as a white male with brown hair.
The red pickup they were driving was stolen in the vicinity of the abduction of Shady Lane in Lyndon. It was last seen heading southeast, possibly heading for the Allegany Mountains, police said.
O’Callaghan urged anyone who sees the youths or the pickup to call 911.
“Do not take matters into your own hands. Call 911,” O’Callaghan said.
