WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) - Police investigating the abduction and slaying of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway are searching for the owner of a small wooden cross found during the investigation.
Police Friday did not say where the 1-1/2 inch-by-1-inch cross with an offset horizontal bar was found or why it might be associated with the case. Police released pictures and asked the public for information about anyone seen with such a cross or businesses that sell it.
The cross can be worn as a necklace.
Police have no suspects in Jessica's Oct. 5 abduction and slaying. Investigators believe an attempted abduction May 28 at Ketner Lake in Jessica's neighborhood may be related.
A 22-year-old woman reported that a man grabbed her from behind and placed a rag with a chemical smell over her face.
