A couple of days ago a story broke about a small 9-year-old girl in Meridian who was almost abducted when a man approached her offering candy and then tried to grab her by the wrists.  As of now, police have not been able to track down this suspect but the Meridian Police Department is releasing this sketch in hopes that someone who knows something will step forward helping in the capture of this man before he attempts another abduction.
