Osaka prefectural police on Monday appealed to the public for any information that might help them find out what happened to a nine-year-old girl who went missing on May 20, 2003 in the town of Kumatori near Osaka Bay.
As they do each year on May 20, police and support group of the girl's family handed out posters at Nankai Electric Railway’s Nanba Station, featuring photos of Yuri Yoshikawa who is believed to have been abducted while she was on her way home from school, Fuji TV reported. No trace of her has been found since.
During the past 15 years, police have followed up on thousands of leads and there is a 3 million yen reward offered for information concerning Yuri’s fate.
Police said the only tangible lead they have is that a Toyota Crown was seen driving away from the area where Yuri is believed to have been abducted, with a male driver and a young girl in the front passenger seat.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Izumisano police station at 0724-64-1234.© Japan Today
