COPS are urgently hunting a child abductor after a 12-year-old girl was taken by the waist and taken to a secluded woodland in Leeds.
The girl was walking to school when she was approached by the man near the M621 viaduct.
He carried it across the road to a hidden wooded area behind an electrical substation during the horror on April 23 at about 9:15 in the morning.
The girl bravely managed to retaliate and the suspect fled after being disturbed by a passerby who called the police.
West Yorkshire Police have now released images of a man they would like to speak to after the abduction.
He was filmed running in a park by the passerby.
