LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police are investigating reports that a teenage girl was dragged up a hillside east of downtown Los Angeles and may have been kidnapped.

Police say witnesses reported seeing a man dragging a screaming girl by the hair into a brushy area of El Sereno shortly before 8 p.m. Monday night.

Police say the man also punched the girl, who was about 13 to 15 years old, and removed some of her clothing.

Officers aided by bloodhounds and helicopters began searching a 350-acre area. They found some leggings and tennis shoes but not the girl.

The search ended Monday night and resumes Tuesday morning.
