The Newsday's Rhondor Dowlat has a story in the Friday edition on the disappearance of two little girls between Tuesday and Wednesday.
"ANTI-KIDNAPPING Squad (AKS) police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the abduction of two schoolgirls, aged seven and eight, in unrelated incidents between Tuesday and Wednesday."
Yet the story's headline reads: "Schoolgirls feared kidnapped".
This is for the person who came up with the headline but who clearly did not read the story first; to abduct means 'to carry off by force; kidnap'. What do the young people say when you say or write something that's obvious? 'Duh!'
