An Amber Alert has been issued in hopes of locating Alisa Maier. She was last seen playing with her brother in the front yard of their home, which is located 80 miles north of St. Louis.

According to the missing girl's 5-year-old brother, a black, four-door car pulled up around 8 p.m. and snatched his sister.

The boy told police that car may have damage to the hood or the front end, reports CBS affiliate KMOV.

He also caught a glimpse of the apparent abductor and described him as a white male with dark hair, who's believed to be in his late teens or early twenties.

The family says they can not think of any family members or friends who would want to take Alisa, and have reason to believe the kidnapping is random.

Alisa Maier stands about three feet tall and weighs 40 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jean shorts.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Louisiana(Mo.) Police Department at 573-754-4021, the Pike County Sheriff's Department at 573-324-3202 or the FBI at 314-589-2500.
