    Police are investigating a possible kidnapping of a girl in Hollywood Tuesday morning.

    Hollywood Police said the incident happened in the 2100 block of Garfield Street around 8:30 a.m. when a witness reported seeing two men force a girl into their truck.

    The two men were Hispanic and were driving a black Ford F-150, police said. The girl was Hispanic and believed to be between 12 and 17 years old, about 5-foot-2 and 100 pounds wearing blue jeans, torn shorts, a black shirt and an orange backpack.

    Police said there were no reports of missing students or children in the surrounding schools.

    "After several hours of canvassing the area and conducting a thorough investigation, our detectives are unable to confirm an abduction has occurred to this point. However, this is still an ongoing investigation," police said in a statement.

    The truck reportedly fled northbound on 22nd Avenue. No other information was immediately known.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Hollywood Police at 954-967-4636.
