OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma City police say they've found little information to confirm an 8-year-old girl's story that she was kidnapped from her home.

Sergeant Paco Balderrama says the only evidence is what 8-year-old Breanna Williams told officers and one fingerprint lifted from a door of the home.

The girl told police a man took her from her family's apartment Sunday and put her in a car then covered her with a blanket in the back seat.

She said when the man stopped a few blocks away and tried to pull her out of the car she bit his hand and ran to a nearby house and police were called.

Balderrama says officers haven't been able to get enough information to release a description of the man and he says the fingerprint could belong to anyone who goes into the apartment.

Officers also found no footprints, no car tire tracks, no clothing or anything else to help verify the girl's story.

The girl's mother says she believes her daughter. Linda Williams says Breanna "doesn't know how to lie" and that any suggestion she might have run away or gotten lost is out of the question.
