LOUISIANA, Mo. A man wanted for questioning in the abduction of a 4-year-old Missouri girl has died after shooting himself as police officers arrived at his home, police said Thursday. The man died Wednesday night at St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Charles, Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Al Nothum said. His name has not been released. It was a gruesome twist to the story of Alisa Maier, a little girl with big brown eyes who was snatched from the front yard of her Louisiana, Mo., home about 8 p.m. Monday while her mother was inside cooking dinner. Her 6-year-old brother, Blake, told police a young man in a dark-colored car pulled up and ordered Alisa to get in. A little more than 24 hours later, a dark-colored car was seen at a car wash in St. Louis County, some 70 miles to the south. About the same time, a child was seen wandering around the car wash. It turned out to be Alisa. Police followed up on more than 100 leads in the search for her kidnapper. About 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers approached a tiny home in Hawk Point, Mo., a small community that sits between Louisiana and St. Louis County. As officers sought to talk to a man they described as a "person of interest," he pulled out a handgun and shot himself.
