OKLAHOMA CITY – A 10-year-old Texhoma girl who escaped from her abductor's vehicle in New Mexico has been reunited with her family, and investigators on Sunday issued a revised description of her captor.
Marissa Graham was abducted Thursday in Texhoma, forced into the trunk of a white vehicle and tied up, FBI spokesman Gary Johnson said. Her abductor later moved her into a purple vehicle, possibly a minivan or a hatchback.
She escaped Friday when she kicked open a door of the vehicle and ran into a convenience store in Clovis, N.M., about 200 miles away.
"She's a very courageous, smart child and we feel very fortunate that she's been recovered safely," Johnson said.
Johnson said the girl has been working with authorities to develop a more detailed description of her captor.
Johnson said the suspect is white, about 6 feet tall, with a thin build, in his 30s or younger. He had short, brown hair, parted on the side and wore glasses. He was wearing a blue shirt with "Princeton" in orange letters, tan cargo-style pants and white Nike tennis shoes.
"We have no indication at this time where he is from," Johnson said. "We're keeping our investigation very broad here."
