PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Trial witnesses say a Philadelphia girl abducted from her kindergarten was missing for six hours before her family learned she was gone.

A former day care worker is accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting the 5-year-old and hiding her at home for nearly a day.

Prosecutors told jurors in opening statements Monday that Christina Regusters of Philadelphia acted alone.

However, they say the girl believes a man is responsible, because that's what she was told after being blindfolded.

The 21-year-old Regusters had worked at an after-school program the girl attended.

Prosecutors say she posed as the girl's mother to sign her out that morning. Witnesses say no one realized the mistake until after school.

A defense lawyer says Regusters does not match the description of the school intruder.
