A composite sketch of a person of interest in a Cleveland child abduction was released Wednesday.

A person in the neighborhood came forward and provided the FBI with the details for the sketch. "A little bit before the abduction he encountered the person of interest in his yard. He approached the guy and asked what are you doing in the area and the person of interest said he was waiting on a ride," said Special Agent Vicki Anderson. 

Authorities are looking for a person believed to have been seen in the vicinity of West 104th Street on May 21 when a 6-year-old girl was abducted.
 
Forensic evidence linked this case to an attempted abduction in¬†Elyria  on February 25, where a man pull a 10-year-old girl out of  her bedroom window while she was sleeping , according to the FBI.
 
"We need to get this guy in custody. We are concerned he will do it again. If we don't get him he probably is going to do it again," added Anderson.
 
 
 
A reward of up to $20,000 has been announced for information leading to the successful identification and prosecution of the individual responsible for the incidents.
