Report of couple driving with girl in trunk unfounded, cops say

SAN DIEGO – A report Wednesday that a young girl was locked in a trunk in Logan Heights has proven to be unfounded, detectives tell FOX 5.

Police were searching for an Acura possibly involved in a child abduction in Logan Heights, based on a 911 caller who reported that a man and woman drove off with a 10-year-old girl in the trunk of the car.

The car was described as black with Washington license plate number BEA3536, San Diego police officer Tony Martinez said Wednesday.

The caller said the alleged abduction happened about 8:20 a.m. near South Evans Street and Kearny Avenue, about two blocks from Burbank Elementary School, Martinez said. The circumstances weren’t immediately clear, including the relationship — if any — of the reporting party to the girl or the people in the car.
