34-year-old Bobby Bourne is charged tonight with kidnapping 12-year-old Adrianna Horton. Police say the man from Lockwood was last seen with the girl in a park Monday.
Horton’s eight-year-old sister said Bourne drove up to the girls three times while they were playing in the park.
“He said, ‘Can you help me find my two youngest daughters? They went over to their best friend’s house,’” Lydia Horton said while clutching a picture of her big sister. “Then he said to Sissy, ‘ I have a secret to tell you when we get on the highway.’”
The girl said she turned around and her big sister was gone. Lydia said she ran to her grandmother’s house and told the adults that Adrianna had disappeared.
“What upsets me the most is, she knew this man, she played with this guy’s kids,” said her grandmother. “She would not have gotten into that car willingly.”
