Local new station ABC 10 has just uncovered that the suspected abductor in the California Amber Alert may have had a crush on the missing 16-year-old.

The police are on the look out for Ethan Anderson, 8 and Hannah Anderson, 16 who are believed to have been abducted by James Lee DiMaggio, 40. DiMaggio was a close friend of the abducted children's mother, Christina Anderson and, according to a family friend, the kids in the family called him "Uncle Jim." On Sunday night police were called to a fire that had consumed DiMaggio's house. In the burnt out wreckage they found the body of Christina Anderson, as well as the body of another unidentified child. DiMaggio is now a suspect in the arson/murder as well as the kidnapping.

ABC 10 is reporting that a friend of the family revealed today that, "DiMaggio told Hannah he had a crush on her."

The 16-year-old Hannah Anderson was very active on social media and it seems that she and DiMaggio followed each other on a number of platforms.

DiMaggio went by the handle "Bajabuddie" on Instagram. Hannah followed his account:
