FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Authorities have issued an Amber Alert for an 8-year-old Fresno girl who was apparently abducted from her front yard while playing with a friend.

The California Highway Patrol says Elisa Cardenas was taken around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

CHP Sgt. Trent Cross tells KRON-TV the girl was taken by a stranger who managed to lure her to his vehicle.

She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a light purple Winnie the Pooh sweat shirt.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male around 6-feet tall and in his 20s with a shaved head. He was wearing a white tank top and blue jeans and driving an older model, reddish brown Ford two-door pickup truck. The vehicle had a 6-inch white stripe on it.
