ACT Policing has released the image of a man who is alleged to have abducted a 16-year-old Theodore girl on Tuesday, June 14.

Around 9.25am (June 14) the victim, who was wearing black tracksuit pants and a red top, was waiting at a bus stop in Theodore. A vehicle described as an older model, dark green-coloured Holden or Ford sedan stopped alongside her, a man got out and the victim was forced into the back seat. She was driven for a short time to a house, taken inside but managed to escape.

The house is described as a single story brick home with a wooden front door and windows either side. One of the windows had a slightly torn curtain believed to be yellow in colour. It has a concrete driveway down the left side of the block which leads to a brown wooden gate leading to the backyard.

The backyard has knee length grass, several dumped cars and washing machines.

The offender is described as aged in his late 20s, about 5’10”-6’ tall (178-183cm), stocky build, slightly tanned skin, and a beard.

He was wearing a black, hooded jumper and blue adidas tracksuit pants with white stripes down the side.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident and may have seen the girl, wearing black tracksuit pants and a red top, walking along pathways in the Chisholm or Richardson area, near the Calwell shops or in area of Theodore on Tuesday, 14 June is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.

There’s two houses in a cul de sac near Twamley Crescent in Gilmore with cars in their backyards. I don’t know if this story is true so I don’t want to point at the exact location but they aren’t too hard to spot.

One of them has an insane amount of stuff back there.

This is kind of fun, but it’s not exactly illegal to have cars in your backyard 🙂

Now I’m checking out people’s backyards for rubbish on nearmap and googlemaps! I really should get a hobby… So far the only one I’ve found that might fit the description is -35.448245°, 149.126712°.

Surely with that kind of description the place can’t be that hard to find?

Get onto google street view, and narrow the place down.

I still think this story sounds suss.

Yeah, you’d think a few hours with Nearmap (http://www.nearmap.com/), which has higher res pics and is updated more frequently than google maps, and has a timeline of aerial views (the latest being 6 may 2011) would find the house pretty quick. If it exists? I’m sure the bunch of old cars and fridges were still there on 6 may 2011.
Surely the cops just need to sit down with her and trace as much of the route as she remembers, then scan houses within ~1km of her approximate route?

Hmmmmmm.

Have you ever fled somewhere in panic?

It’s fairly well documented the brain remembers certain details, however small and irrelevent, over some more important details. Especially during traumatic events. I’m not saying the story is legit or anything, I’m just saying that’s not the best argument for disproving it 🙂

I agree, it will be interesting to see how it pans out.
