Mundelein police on Wednesday released a sketch of the man they say briefly abducted a 3-year-old girl this week.

The drawing was based on information provided by the girl's 9-year-old sister and a witness, Police Chief Eric Guenther said.

Officials have received dozens of tips or reports of possible sightings, but none have panned out, Guenther said.

The girl was kidnapped about 5:30 p.m. Monday from the entrance of an apartment building on the 500 block of Deepwoods Drive. She was returned to the area about 30 minutes later.

The girl was with her mother and older sister at the time, police said.

The kidnapper had been seen earlier in the day giving candy to children in the area, and he was reported to be in the area Sunday as well, police said.

Authorities described the suspect as a Hispanic man who appeared to be in his 20s. He had short, curly hair and a goatee, police said.

He was seen driving a small, black or navy blue car. It may have been a Hyundai Accent, police said. Images of the car may have been captured on a neighbor's home video, Guenther said.

Anyone with information should call police at (847) 968-4600. Residents should call police if they see anyone suspicious in their neighborhood.
