SALT LAKE CITY -- Unified Police officers have been knocking on doors in the Millcreek area for the last few hours.

They're trying to determine if a 14-year old girl was picked up by a man and taken against her will. They're not calling it a kidnapping at this point and no Amber alert has been issued.

About 6:30 p.m., a six-year-old boy witnessed a white Caucasian male in his 30's with reddish-brown hair grab a 13-year-old African-American girl who was walking down 825 E., south of 3300 South. After he grabbed her, duct taped her mouth, he put her in a white van in which he drove off.

Police are canvassing the area, trying to find someone who knows if the man was in fact a stranger, or if it was an adult with guardianship. Not tips have come back yet, and they are allocating as many resources as they can to finding her, Unified Police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact them.
