The incident happened earlier on Tuesday when Daniella was playing by herself at a playground in the Crescent Acres area of Prince Albert. Surveillance footage showed a man - believed to be about 18 to 30 years old - hanging around the playground at the same time.

The surveillance footage showed Daniella exiting the playground as the man appears to follow her. The suspect was then seen talking to the girl near the wall of a school, after which the man allegedly grabbed the girl and placed her into the back seat of his car.

The suspect then climbed into the front of his vehicle and drove away north on Olive Diefenbaker Drive, according to the Prince Albert Police Service.

The suspect is described as a dark skinned male with long shaggy hair, believed to be between 18 and 30 years old. He was last seen wearing a dark ball cap and was driving a dark four-door colored vehicle with a rear spoiler.

Anyone who sees Daniella, the suspect, or the suspect vehicle is urged to call 911 immediately, or call 1-877-SOAMBER (1-877-762-6237) if you have any other information that could help investigators in their search.
