Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station detectives are releasing a composite sketch of the suspect sought in the kidnapping of a 12-year-old girl. On October 4, 2017, at approximately 5:45 PM, the victim, a 12-year-old girl, fell behind while she running with her sports team in the Bridgeport Park area of Valencia when she was approached by a man who offered her a ride.
