High school student called 911 from Oklahoma



    A Frisco teenager offered few details about her abduction when she called 911 in Oklahoma the day after she disappeared.

    Stroud, a senior at Lone Star High School, told Frisco police that she was taken at gunpoint from the employee parking lot outside the Dr Pepper StarCenter after after work at about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

    Police said she made a muffled, 12-second 911 call in Frisco at 9:52 p.m.

    She again called 911 in Muskogee, a less-than-five-hour drive from Frisco, nearly 24 hours later.

    Dispatcher: Rescue 911 center police, fire, ambulance.

    Stroud: Um, yes, I'm at the Braum's. I really don't know where I am, but I know I'm at a Braum's.

    Dispatcher: OK.

    Stroud: And I need an officer please.

    Dispatcher: OK, ma'am, can you tell me what's wrong?

    Stroud: I was abducted Friday night.

    Dispatcher: OK.

    Stroud: I need an officer.

    Dispatcher: Are you OK there right now?

    Stroud: Yeah, I'm fine.

    In the call, Stroud did not mention what happened while she was abducted. She did not describe the kidnapper to the dispatcher or say the kidnapper had a gun.

    Dispatcher: Have you been left there did you get away or?

    Stroud: No, he was, he stopped on the side of the road, I don't know, a few hours ago, and I think he was going to the bathroom, and I jumped in the seat and drove away.

    Dispatcher: Do you know who took you?

    Stroud: No, I have no idea.

    Dispatcher: Who you were with, or was it a stranger?

    Dispatcher: How many days has this been going on?

    Stroud: I was, it was Friday night after I had gotten off work

    The call ended politely with Stroud thanking the dispatcher.

    Frisco police said Stroud was only able to give a vague, nonspecific description of the kidnapper.

    Police continue to investigate the incident as an abduction. They have given no indication that an assault of any kind took place.
