SOUTHERN PINES They're looking for 14-year-old Gabriela Patricia Velazquez.

Monday the Southern Pines Police Department told Eyewitness News it has a photo of 20-year-old Ciro Salinas, who they believe abducted her.

She has a birth mark on the right calf. She was last seen wearing a white shirt, blue jeans and high heel shoes.
