OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland police have identified a person of interest in the apparent carjacking and kidnapping of an elderly man and a teenage girl outside a supermarket.
Officer Johnna Watson said at a news conference on Wednesday that police are looking for 54-year-old Roy McCamey of Oakland. McCamey allegedly matches the description of a man who stole items inside the Safeway prior to Tuesday's carjacking, when police say a man armed with a knife took over a red four-door sedan with an elderly man and 13-year-old girl inside.
The incident prompted a statewide Amber Alert. The vehicle has a California license plate with the number 6JFM648.
Police say though no missing person's reports have been filed, they are still treating the case as a kidnapping until they have reason to believe otherwise.
