Jefferson County, Arvada, CO — Is Colorado suspect in last weeks attempted abduction of two children related to the disappearance of Jessica Ridgeway?

Arvada Police are trying to locate a suspect in an attempted child abduction case. The man has approached children near Warder Elementary School and Fitzmorris Elementary School twice this past week. In both cases, the unidentified adult male has offered candy to children, then tried luring them into his vehicle.

The first victim described the man as having a thin build and mustache, while the second victim described the man as having no facial hair. Police and witnesses are certain it’s the same man and he most likely shaved his facial hair after growing it to disguise himself.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with light blond/brown hair and around 5’9” tall with a thin build. Police believe he is between the ages of – Late teens to early thirties.

The biggest clue is the suspect’s vehicle which is described as a mid 1990′s era royal blue, four-door sedan with dents on the passenger side rear door. It may also have half of the rear wheels covered with a “skirt” similar to those seen on a 1996 Cadillac Deville.

Jefferson County Public Schools sent a letter home with all Arvada students on Thursday, (10/04/12) to alert parents and to remind them of the importance of talking with their child about ”stranger danger” and what to do if a stranger tried taking them against their will. In the letter it also talks about telling children to be aware of their surroundings.

A couple of days after the letter’s were sent, a 10-year-old girl disappeared on her way to school just a few miles away. Jessica Ridgeway disappeared on her way to Witt Elementary School on October 5th. An Amber Alert was issued by Arvada Police Department less than one hour later. She was ultimately discovered deceased less then a week after her disappearance not far from the attempted abductions mentioned above.
