Police in Superior are investigating a suspected abduction of a girl in Superior on Labor Day.

Northland News Center reports that a juvenile girl told police she was kidnapped on Labor Day afternoon, Sept. 7, by two men with "covered faces."

She is said to have been approached while she was riding a bike in the area of N. 42nd St. and Albany Ave., with the men ordering her into a blue or black colored car, where they blindfolded her.

She told police she was released about two hours later, near the same place she was taken.

According to the Duluth News Tribune, police have conducted K9 and physical searches, used computer forensics, and multiple interviews following the report, but say it has found it a "challenge to corroborate" significant portions of the girl's story.

They are now searching for the bike the girl was riding at the time she was said to have been abducted, which has not been found since the report.

It is described as teal in color, with the brand name Specialized Vita Sports.

Anyone with information should call Superior Police on 715 395-7234.
