An Amber Alert has been released for a missing 10-year-old from Missouri on Tuesday evening.

Hailey Owens from Springfield was last seen at 3247 West Lombard Street on Tuesday afternoon as she was heading home from her friends house a couple of blocks away from where she lives on W. Page St. Neighbors witnessed the event of Hailey's abduction as they sat in their garage. They told KY3 News that a man that was seen driving up and down the street several times, pulled up to Hailey in his truck and asked her where Springfield St. was. As she got close to the truck he reached out and grabbed her and pulled her through the driver's side open door. That vehicle, a tan 2008 Ford Ranger with Missouri plates 1YF454 or 1YS454 was last seen on Scenic from Grand in Springfield.

One neighbor ran after the truck while the wife wrote down the license plate number and called 911, reports the News-Leader.

Although the abduction was witnessed and reported immediately it took over two hours for an Amber Alert to be released.

Hailey has long brown hair and brown eyes and pierced ears. She was wearing blue jean shorts and purple sandals. According to Esther Dunlap, a relative of Hailey's, the man is described as white about 6'1" tall with gray hair and wearing a ball cap.

Hailey could be in any of the neighboring states, so please keep your eye out for the truck. If you spot the vehicle please contact the Springfield Police Department at 417-864-1810. Also, if you see someone who you think is Hailey, please take a cell phone photo and call the police. Let's do all we can to help get this little girl home.
