FISH LAKE, Ind. – La Porte County Deputies have released the description of the man who attempted to abduct a one-year-old by stuffing him in duffel bag Friday evening.

Deputies say the suspect is a white male in his 40s with brown scruffy “surfer” hair.

He is said to be approximately 5’11” at 200 pounds with a stocky, athletic build.

The man was last seen wearing rings on both of his hands, a white T-shirt, gray camouflage shorts, and brown work boots with white socks. He is also said to have unshaven, tan “leathery” skin and prominent crow’s feet around his eyes.

According to deputies, the suspect fled in a gray 1990s-model Ford Aerostar van. Deputies note the picture provided above is not the actual suspect vehicle, but similar to it.
