The eerie pencil outline of Cheng Ying, done by her father one night last summer before she went to sleep, remains on the wall above the bed. Her parents haven't seen the 6-year-old since they sent her off to school dressed in a black-and-white-checked coat two months ago. The school was no help in finding her, they say. The police weren't either, even refusing to fill out a missing person's report.

A woman wanted for child abduction in Maryland was arrested Tuesday in Riverside. Margarita Maria Peterson, 35, allegedly abducted her 10-year-old son, Rayon Gray, near Baltimore in October, after the boy's father left him for a visit. Riverside police say Peterson enrolled her son at Longfellow Elementary School in Riverside, but went into hiding with her son in May when the television show "America's Most Wanted" broadcast a story of the missing boy and he was recognized.
