Police Friday (16 June) confirm they’re investigating a possible child abduction attempt.
Police say Thursday (15 June) morning they received a report that a man in a light blue two-seat van attempted to pick up a young boy walking home from a park in West Bay.
A social media post from the boy’s mother claims the man in the truck told the boy he was sent to pick him up and would show the boy a text to prove it. The boy refused and walked away.
Police are urging parents to speak with their children about not accepting rides or gifts from strangers.
