Fraser/Winter Park Police Investigate Possible Kidnapping

On Jan, 26, at about 6:42 p.m., the Fraser/Winter Park Police were notified of a possible kidnapping that involved an adult female. An investigation into this incident has revealed the following:

The victim, identified as a 29-year-old female from Boulder County, reported that between 5:30 and 6 p.m. that evening, she was sitting on a bench near the Ski Broker at 78719 Main Street in Winter Park.

The victim reported that she was approached by a male individual who asked her if she wanted to go party with him. After refusing his requests several times, the victim said the male grabbed her by the arm and escorted her to a white minivan that was parked in the parking lot. Once at the van, the victim reported that the male opened the sliding door to the van and had her sit in the back seat, at which time he also got into the rear passenger seat as well.

A second white male then drove the van westbound on Main Street for about two blocks, at which time the driver then stopped the van and allowed the female to get out. The victim was uninjured and was not sexually assaulted during this event.

The Fraser/Winter Park Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating this van, and the two suspects. The van is described as a white “soccer mom” type van with a sliding passenger door, and with rear bench seats.

Suspect #1 is described as a white male, in his mid-to-late 20’s, 6’01”, thin build, with blond or light red hair and beard, and light colored eyes. The suspect was also reportedly wearing a stocking cap with “ears”.

Suspect #2 (the vehicle driver) is also described as a white male in his mid-to-late 20’s, approximately 6’01, with dark hair, a round face, and one-two days growth of beard.

Anyone with information regarding this incident are asked to call Detective Amy Zacek Smith at (970) 722-7779.
