Composite drawings were released Sunday of two of the three men sought in the kidnapping and sexual assault Friday of a 15-year-old girl who was walking home from high school in Encinitas in northern San Diego County.

Three men, described as Latino and in their early 20s to early 30s, pushed the girl into a car Friday afternoon, drove for nearly an hour and sexually assaulted her before returning her to a location near San Dieguito Academy where she is a student, the county Sheriff's Department said.

The car is described as a white, older-model sedan with a squared-off back and tinted back windows.

Anyone with information is asked to call (858) 565-5200.

The Sheriff's Department plans extra patrols around schools Monday in Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar.
