Duluth police are looking for the public's help as they investigate what a witness described as an abduction of a 14-year-old girl from a park Wednesday night, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

Police were called at 5:45 p.m. by someone who said an American Indian man in a black Ford Expedition SUV with white rims pulled up to the girl near Lincoln Park and got out of the SUV carrying a police-style baton, the newspaper reports. The caller said the man forced the girl into the vehicle and drove away, the newspaper reports.

The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has more details about the case on its Facebook page. The caller gave some specific descriptions, noting that the 5-foot-11 man wore a black mask and a long-sleeved Chicago Bulls shirt, BCA officials say. The girl, also believed to be American Indian, had long, black hair in a bun, and wore white sunglasses, a green shirt with “Aero” written on it, white leggings, flip-flops and a silver bracelet, the witness said.

The girl also reportedly had a stud piercing above her right eye, and "perfect teeth," KAAL reports.
