GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (News4Utah) – An Amber Alert has been canceled for a 12-year-old girl out of Colorado after police confirm she was found safe. The man accused of kidnapping her remains at large.

Law enforcement is currently attempting to locate and contact Jody Haskin, 47, of Grand Junction.

Haskin is a white man, about 6′, 215 lbs, balding, with brown eyes and glasses. Haskin is the victim’s step father; however, he has no parental rights to Raeanna.

Witness statements indicate that Raeanna entered the vehicle willingly. Police say Haskin is a registered sex offender, and currently has a warrant for his arrest for sex assault on a child out of the Grand Junction Police Department. 

The green car that was initially associated with this incident was found in Rifle, Colo. The investigation into the circumstances of how the car got there, who was driving, and when it arrived, is ongoing. Police are no longer looking for a vehicle matching that description. 

Authorities don’t know how Haskin is traveling and they don’t believe he is in the Grand Junction area anymore. They are working to develop leads as to where he might be headed. 

If you have any information about Raeanna’s whereabouts, please call 911.
