On September 16, 2013 at approximately at 6:34 p.m., the Macon County 911 transferred an emergency call to the Sheriff's Office in reference to an attempted kidnapping in the New Cambria City Park. The reporting party advised a female subject was the victim of an attempted kidnapping near the City of New Cambria's park.
The reporting party advised that two white males in a black van attempted to take a female subject and that she escaped from them by running away to Suzie Q's Bar and Grill. They advised the last direction of travel was on Brimstone Avenue in New Cambria, Missouri.
Numerous Law Enforcement agencies including the Sheriff's Office responded to the location in an attempt to locate the suspect vehicle without success. A Macon County Sheriff's Deputy then responded to the Bar and Grill with another deputy and made contact with the victim, whose name has been kept anonymous for the safety of that victim.
The victim stated she was walking west on Morgan Street when she had seen a black van turn from Hwy 149/Main Street onto Roberts Street toward her. The victim stated she thought the van was a suspicious so began walking toward the bar. She said when the van drove past her it turned partially blocking her travel and the driver asked her if she knew how to get to Wien. She started to tell the male driver directions when another male approached her from behind and yelled at her to get into the van. She says the male who yelled at her grabbed her by the back of the shirt trying to get her into the van causing her shirt to rip.
She stated she began to fight back with the man and struck him in the face, causing the male to lose his grip on her clothes allowing her time to run away from the suspects through the park. The victim told the deputy the van then left the area on Main Street heading northwest toward State Highway Z. She then called her mother and told her what had taken place and she was told to go to bar to get help. An employee of the bar and grill then called 911 to report the incident.
While speaking with the victim, the deputy asked her if she could describe the suspects. She stated the driver was a white male, approximately 50 years of age with a long, scruffy, black, full-face beard. She advised he had long black hair and was wearing a black T-shirt. She described the voice of the driver as raspy and deep. She was unable to provide any other descriptors and advised he did not exit the vehicle. She described the other suspect who exited the vehicle and attempted to kidnap her as a heavy set/chubby, bald white male, approximately 30-40 years of age, wearing a white T-shirt. She remembered he had a distinct tattoo, possibly on his right arm toward the back of his elbow of sugar skulls with flowers. She advised the flowers were possibly blue and green in color. She also advised he had a full sleeve tattoo on the same arm down to his hand.

No other details were provided. The suspects or vehicle have not been located at this time. A MULES broadcast was sent to agencies regarding the vehicle and suspect information.
