It is feared that missing Engla (pictured here just a few minutes before she vannished) may have been abducted by a predator just 500m from home.

Again we have to be cautious here and not jump to eager conclusions about a child being abducted by a predator especially as there was a very recent case in Stockholm, Sweden where a 10 year old girl made up a story about an alleged abduction.

Girl made up story about abduction

Published: 28 Feb 08 14:38 CET


The ten-year-old girl who claimed she was kidnapped and then pushed into the water in central Stockholm has admitted she was lying.

Police no longer believe she was the victim of a crime.

"The girl was not abducted in Tensta and then taken to Stockholm as she originally alleged. Why she made the claim remains unclear. It could be the result of a family tragedy of some sort," said prosecutor Henrik S├Âderman to news agency TT.

The girl said that she was kidnapped by an unknown man on February 4th near a school in the suburb of Tensta, just northwest of Stockholm.

The man then allegedly forced her on to the subway, eventually bringing her to Stockholm City Hall, where he then pushed her into the cold waters of Riddarfjärden.

The girl was discovered in the water by two men who had parked their car near the quay. They helped her out and called an ambulance.

Police have examined images from several security cameras in the subway and have established that the girl rode into the city alone.

"There is no man with the girl in the pictures. Her account doesn't add up. But we don't know how she ended up in the water," said S├Âderman.

The girl was presented with the security camera analysis and then reminded of her own account of events, but was unable to answer police as to why she was alone in the pictures.

The prosecutor still hasn't formally closed the investigation, which is looking into suspicions of kidnapping and attempted murder.

I know - but there are other circumstances that would signify that harm may have come to this child:
- she called her mum to let her know she was on the way home
- a group of walkers saw her 500m from home - one of the group snapped a picture of her on her bike while testing his new camera
- 1› hours later her bike was found under a pile of leaves by her family a couple of minutes from home
- her mobile phone was still on for a couple of days but could not be localised in the vast forest
- a car belonging to a man with a previous conviction for sexual assault was caught on film by the same group of walkers timed at 1 minute after the photo of the girl was taken.
- varous objects belonging to Engla have been found in the forest
- it has been below freezing and has been snowing since monday - so unlikely that a 10 year old would be hiding out in the forest voluntarily

...... not looking good unless someone is hiding her.......

Poor little girl and her family.We shouldn't start to doubt every abduction now,even after the Shannon Matthews fiasco.It does sound frighteningly genuine.

what it does reinforce is that the most likely abductor of a child, by a long way, is a man in a car

also the biggest threat to women on their own

which is why amber alert depends on the description of a vehicle

It is also a typical scene for an abduction to occur-a public area.

Poor little girl. I fear the outcome will not be good. This is a case where there is "proof" of an abduction, unlike another one I can think of.
My thoughts are with her parents.

A man has today been remanded in custody charged with abducting Engla. She has still not been found.......

Sad that the fake abductions of Shannon and likely Madeleine are getting more coverage than the real abduction of Engla..... :(

I, for one, would never have heard of Engla had it not been for this site and the interest in MMcC. Be interesting to know if the alleged abductor is known to the child/family.

Edited to ask Katherine - can you translate any relevant bits of the article http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article2232943.ab please?
Thanks
