Searchers from the King and Pierce County Sheriff's Departments are searching an area near Tiger Mountain today after getting a tip in the case of a kidnapped 12-year-old Tacoma girl who has been the focus of an AMBER Alert for nearly a week. Spokesman Mark Fulgum says Tacoma Police received a tip about the case. A command post has been set up at Tiger Mountain Summit along Highway 18. Dozens of people and a helicopter are taking part in the search. Zina Linnik has been missing since July 4.She and her sisters watched fireworks and played in an alley behind their Tacoma home located near South 25th and J Streets. A family member heard Zina scream, and when her dad ran out of the house to see what happened, he saw a man in a van speeding away. Police believe Zina was taken by a man driving an older model, box-shaped gray van, possibly a Toyota or Volkswagon, with a partial plate of 677 or 667. During a news conference Monday, Tacoma Police Department Chief Donald Ramsdell asked the public to keep an eye out for unusual behavior that may point to a suspect. "The broadcast of the vehicle description makes the vehicle a liability for the offender," said Ramsdell. "The offender will likely seek to distance himself from that liability in many ways. If the vehicle was borrowed, he will immediately return it. He may park the vehicle in an inconspicious location, perhaps covering the vehicle with a tarp or storing the vehicle in the garage out of sight. If questioned, he may explain the vehicle has mechanical problems and is no longer driveable." Ramsdell added the suspect could have changed the vehicle's appearance, possibly repainting it or altering the license plate, or selling it. Police say they have been following up to 200 tips and leads since Zina's disapperance, but so far their search efforts have come up empty. Zina Linnik is of Ukrainian descent. She is described as white, 4-foot-10, 80 pounds, blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a pink T-shirt, pink/orange/yellow capri pants and red flip-flop sandals. Her hair was in a ponytail. Multiple awards are being offered for information leading to the safe return of Zina. The rewards are also for the apprehension and prosecution of the person responsible for the girl's apparent abduction. The FBI is offering $10,000, the Washington State Patrol Trooper Association $5,000, and Tacoma-Pierce County Crimestoppers $1,000.
