Store clerks rescue missing girl after man reportedly lured her with cookies
LYNNWOOD, Wash. - Two alert store clerks on Thursday spotted and helped bring home a missing 14-year-old Snohomish girl, who was found with a 60-year-old man.
The man was arrested on an unrelated, outstanding warrant.
The teenager was taken to Providence Hospital in Everett to be examined by doctors.
A family friend says the suspect met the girl, described as developmentally disabled, at a McDonald's in Snohomish where he gave her cookies and soda and promised a free trip to Hawaii.
Q13 Fox News is no longer identifying the girl by name or showing her photo because her family believes she could have been sexually assaulted.
