State Police warn that if you see the vehicle that fits the profile or a person that you believe may be connected to the abduction, do not approach. Anytime State Police issue an Amber Alert, they do so under the assumption that that the abductor(s) is potentially dangerous and in this case, they do believe that the 13-year-old is in "imminent danger."
