(CODY, Wyo.) – A man accused of abducting an 11-year-old Wyoming girl was arrested in Montana over the weekend. 39-year-old Jesse Paul Speer was taken into custody after law enforcement officials in Yellowstone National Park were able to identify him with a license plate number. Speer’s victim has been returned to her family in Cody. Officers say Speer lured the girl into his car by claiming he was looking for a lost puppy. He is currently awaiting extradition back to Wyoming.
