The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who a 12-year-old Gold Canyon girl says kidnapped her Wednesday.

According to Lt. Tamatha Villar, the girl said a man grabbed her and forced her into his car when she answered the door at 7 a.m. in the 6000 block of South Russet Way.

The man drove around for a while, and the girl escaped by rolling out of the car near Amber Sun Way.

Villar said the girl's parents were home when she was snagged.

They told investigators they had disciplined the girl earlier in the morning for not completing her chores. They believed she had left for school when they heard the door open and close, but her backpack was left behind, so they went to look for her. They found her a short distance from home.

The man is described as white, 6 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 3 inches, 20 to 30 years old with short dark hair, green eyes and a multicolored tattoo on the right side of his neck. He was wearing a black T-shirt with jeans and driving an older model tan or brown four-door sedan with manual door locks.

Anyone with information is asked to call (520) 866-5112.
