Police are looking for a suspect they say tried to rob a Salisbury Best Western during the weekend.

Officers responded to the Best Western on North Salisbury Boulevard at about 8 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 7 for a report of an attempted robbery, Salisbury Police Capt. Rich Kaiser said during Tuesday’s weekly briefing.

“The investigation revealed that a sole male suspect had entered the business through the front door,” he said. “He immediately approached the counter as well as the sole employee that was working and demanded money.”

The man implied he had a gun, Kaiser said, but never actually displayed one.

Baltimore Police seek tips in search for missing autistic 16-year-old Western High student

Baltimore police asked for the public’s help Sunday in the search for an autistic 16-year-old girl who went missing at dismissal from Western High School last week.

Kennedi High, a 10th-grader who lives in Northeast Baltimore, was last seen at dismissal on March 8, and police have been unable to determine whether she boarded her normal Maryland Transit Administration bus or got a ride, Police Department spokesman T.J. Smith said in a news conference.

“She does not have a sense of discernment like you and I, and I don’t think she believes she’s in danger, but she really is,” said Kennedi’s mother, Brandi Stallings. “Whoever has her, I kindly ask that you please, please bring her back home, drop her off at a police station, just put her somewhere safe.”

“I just want to let Kennedi know that we love you as your family, and we just want you home safely,” Stallings said.

(CNN) — Here is some background information about missing children in the United States. There are several different types of missing children: runaways, family abductions, lost or “thrown away” and non-family abductions. Recent advances in technology, communications through public alerts and greater cooperation from law enforcement have helped solve many cases quickly.

Statistics:
The most recent study published by the Department of Justice, from 2002, reported that of the 797,500 children reported missing in a one-year period, 203,900 were abducted by family members and 58,200 were abducted by non-relatives. One-hundred and fifteen were classified as being taken by a stranger.

AMBER Alert:
“AMBER (America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response) Alerts are emergency messages broadcast when a law enforcement agency determines that a child has been abducted and is in imminent danger. The broadcasts include information about the child and the abductor, including physical descriptions as well as information about the
