 Girl abducted in Macomb County, abandoned in Sterling Heights 

This is from this past Tuesday, which was election day in Metro Detroit. A 14-year-old girl and her friend were walking about 10 a.m. near the Lakeside Village at the intersection of 19 Mile and Hayes roads when two men in a black sedan convinced the girl to approach the car. That's when police said one man pulled her into the back seat.

The girl was later found abandoned in Sterling Heights. Apparently she was let go because of her age -- she told the men she was 14 and they let her out of the car. 

Police are still looking for suspects -- here's the full story
