Police are understood to have his shop footage.
One resident, 50, this morning described how the girl was dramatically driven away.
She said: “My neighbour was coming from the shop and a girl about 13 or 14 was in a car.
The girl was screaming, ‘help me, help me,
“Another neighbour was also going there, to call her children playing in the playground and the girl was screaming, ‘help me, help me, help me’.
“The children described what the girl was wearing to the mum. She could see the girl was struggling to open the door.
“They were driving carelessly and the girl forced open the door and was screaming.
“But they were driving so fast and the girl picked up the papers and threw them into the street.
“So the neighbour picked them up and called police.”
The mum who picked up the documents said: “She was screaming ‘help me help me’. “
The teen is described as a young black girl with braided hair who was wearing a red tracksuit bottoms and a red hoodie.
In a statement, police said the girl had been sat in the front passenger seat, but tried to get out of the car through an open rear window.
She was pulled back into the car, which turned around and sped off in the direction of St Ann’s Road before turning right into Frinton Road.
Meanwhile, a 10-year-old boy told how his friend came close to being run over as the car sped off outside his family home.
The youngster added: “They reversed at him but they didn’t go all the way. I think because he saw everything. I don’t know if it was on purpose.”
He said the car approached the girl as she walked down a busy street near the entrance to his housing estate.
He added: “She was walking down the road, the car came and took her.”
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward to help them track the teenager down.
Detective Inspector Lyndsey Billaney said: “We are taking this report very, very seriously and are pursuing a number of urgent lines of enquiry to try to identify the girl and establish her welfare.
“Anyone who has information that could help us, or who thinks they know the girl described and has information as to her whereabouts, is urged to call 101 ref CAD 6314/18 Sept immediately.
“I also urge residents to check dash cam and doorbell footage for any possible sightings of a black Mercedes in the area.”
