The five said they intended to hijack the ELM Boeing 747 shortly after takeoff from Beirut Thursday night, fly to Lahore. Pakistan, and announce their demands, a police spokesman said. Then they would fly to the Persian Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi to wait for further instructions from their leaders, they were quoted.

A lebanese catering porter for KLM also was arrested while trying to smuggle explosives onto the aircraft for the hijackers, police said. “They insisted during their interrogation that they did not plan to blow up the plane,” the spokesman said. The five said they belonged to the Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, one of the five major guerilla groups. The police spokesman reported they said they began training for the hijack 15 days ago. They were provided with forged passports and first-class tickets and given $800 to $1,600 each out of which they bribed the porter to smuggle their explosive aboard.

The 4 year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Peterson has been missing since Feb, 21 and police say they are sure she was abducted. “I used to tell her. every night when I tucked her in, ‘Remember, Heidi, whatever happens. Mommy and Daddy always love you,’ ” said the mother. The concern is not the Petersons' alone. Thousands of volunteer housewives, students, Boy Scouts, merchants and laborers have mobilized in the search. An initial massive search turned up no sign of her. Undaunted, hundreds of house- (Photo on page IO) wives began covering the city with posters bearing her picture and description. Nearly 50.000 leaflets have been distributed and the rearch is spreading to other cities of the Northwest and the nation. “There’s probably been more response on this case than any other I’ve been on in 16 years,” said Detective Bill Buaghman. In schools, children take a lesson to be careful of strangers and offer a prayer for Heidi. Police, merchants and shoppers spent an afternoon downtown hunting without results after a man said he thought he had seen her with a woman. At the Peterson home the waiting i- hard. Peterson is a carpenter. His wife is 36 and wonders if it isn’t harder because she became a mother relatively late. They tell themselves their daughter is safe. Peterson says bluntly, “T here are hopes but the alternative is certainly very grim ” Heidi was apparently taken a couple of weeks after the kidnaping of Patricia Hearst, and Mrs. Peterson compared her situation to that of the Hearst family. “At least they know she’s being held. We dont. They have a terrible fear to live with but we don’t even have that, lf I knew someone had her.. Mrs. Peterson last saw her daughter the afternoon of Feb 21 as Heidi and her brother, Carl, 2, played in front of the modest home Mrs. Peterson left for a short trip to the grocery. Within 15 minutes lier husband stepped outside the house to check on his children and found Carl on his tricycle, alone and with a long face “Heidi go,” said the boy. ;
