I have just confirmed with one of the witnesses that the abductor is CAUCASIAN, not African American! CBS needs to correct this ASAP. This woman's life is likely in danger and you're giving people an incorrect description that could prevent her from being found. This needs to be changed immediately.

One of the witnesses has stated that the suspect is Caucasian. This news report states he's African American. This is a huge discrepancy!
