The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who attempted to kidnap a 9-year-old girl from her yard in the 2200 block of Bayville Road Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff's Investigator William Leisey said the man grabbed the child and took her from her yard but was unable to hold on to her. The man fled in a late 1990s model faded-gray, late model Buick Century.

The would-be kidnapper is described as black, 35 to 40 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds. He had ear-length dreadlocks with beads or shells braided in them, possibly a goatee and mustache. He was wearing a sleeveless, red, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about the incident or the person being sought is asked to call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080. Callers may remain anonymous.

"Sheriff's Investigator

"Sheriff's Investigator William Leisey grabbed the child and took her from her yard but was unable to hold on to her. He fled in a late 1990s model faded-gray, late model Buick Century." I'm confused. Did the investigator grab the child or was it someone else?

I'll need more details on

I'll need more details on this one. Something just doesn't set right about it. On one hand I want to say.... there is alot of detail in the description of the kidnapper.. in my opinion, a situation that happens so fast like this, details would be faint. Too much description leads me to believe there is more to this story. On the other hand.... I don't want to doubt there may be a kidnapper out there and I need to be on the lookout. Alot to think about on this one.

it says "Sheriff's

it says "Sheriff's Investigator William Leisey said the man grabbed the child and took her from her yard but was unable to hold on to her. The man fled in a late 1990s model faded-gray, late model Buick Century. " If you know how to read you can tell what it is saying.

Some of you later commenters

Some of you later commenters might stop and consider that the article probably has been corrected since the first few comments were posted before accusing people of not reading it adequately. The webmaster(s) do actually review comments on occasion and edit things.

Gagirl40 is correct in her

Gagirl40 is correct in her comment. I noticed the wording myself when I first read this article. It has been edited since she posted that comment. On another note, that is a very detailed description of this guy coming from an 8 year old. I hope they find this guy and get him off the street before he can attempt this again.

As a matter a fact there is

As a matter a fact there is way more to this story... Always remember this half of what you read in the news is twisted & partially correct. The reason the description is so well is because this same piece of sh@t ([filtered word]) came & knocked on the Grandmother's door Monday during the day. He said his car broke down & he couldn't take the heat so could he please come in to use the phone & phone book. He was told that they had no phone because something just didn't feel right about the situation. Then the [filtered word]proceeds to ask to use the phone book & come inside to look at it because he couldn't take the heat. He then was told no and the door was shut & locked. The Aunt looked out the window a few minutes later to make sure he had left the porch and yard the [filtered word] & the car was gone. Hope this clarifies things for you. This child was minding her business playing with her cousin when a monster tried to take her & take away her innocence. Everybody better hope that this [filtered word]is caught & put behind bars or preferably in hell because he WILL do this again! It was also not mentioned that this 9 year old girl fought her kidnapper. She bit him & that is when he threw her down.

This is the third time I'll say it this week: Don't trust a grown [filtered word] man with hair like that described above.

Ok, so not real sure why my

Ok, so not real sure why my last comment was deleted.... To explain again this monster came to the door on Monday claiming his car was broken down. He asked to use the phone & a phone book but wanted to come in because he he couldn't handle the heat. He was told no that he couldn't come in & after he asked a few more times the door was shut & locked. A few minutes later, imagine this the broke down car & the monster were gone. Hope this explains the description for you!
