Authorities investigating the disappearance of a 10-year-old Colorado girl are looking into whether it could be linked to the abduction of a girl in Wyoming.

Police in the Denver suburb of Westminster say they’re aware of the case in Cody, Wyoming and were working with investigators there on Wednesday.

A man lured an 11-year-old Cody girl into a sport utility vehicle on Monday saying he needed help finding his puppy.  The Cody Police Department reports that the man then threatened the girl with a pistol and sexually assaulted her.  She was released about four hours later and was found by hunters.

Authorities say that the suspect in the Cody, Wyoming case is a white male between 55 and 60 and is thought to weigh between 185 to 200 pounds.  He is described as having short blond or white hair and a trimmed moustache or beard.

Jessica Ridgeway, the girl missing from Westminster, has been missing since Friday, when she left home to meet friends at a park for the walk to school.  The fifth-grader never turned up at school.

Two days later, her backpack was found on a sidewalk in a neighborhood about six miles away.
