FARGO — Police from several jurisdictions worked diligently most of Tuesday morning, Dec. 11, drawing up a game plan to catch a child abductor. The Child Abduction Response Team, or CART, worked through a mock abduction. But Fargo Police Lt. Shannon Ruziska says they don't treat it like a faux abduction. "We learn some things. That's why we do this, so when this does happen in real life, we get it right," said Ruziska, who oversaw the drill. Crews go through the drill each year to make sure they are ready when it's the real thing.

Gourneau was with a friend when she says they passed a group of four or five men in their late 20s. She says the group cat-called her, but she ignored it.
