FENTON, Mo. (AP) -- A police officer and two other people will be honored for their role in the rescue of 4-year-old Alisa Maier.
The Louisiana, Mo., girl was kidnapped last month and dropped off a day later at a car wash in Fenton, a St. Louis suburb some 70 miles from her home.
On Friday, the city of Fenton will honor two residents who came to the girl's aid at the car wash, Kevin McNeeley and Ashley Gibbs, along with the officer who picked her up and realized it might be the missing child, Kevin McNeeley.
The ceremony is at 5:30 p.m. at Heroes Memorial in Fenton City Park.
Alisa was returned to her parents soon after she was found. They have said she was unharmed. Her alleged abductor committed suicide as police approached him days after the abduction.
