Kamloops Mounties looking for driver of truck who offered girl a ride

Kamloops Mounties are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man involved in a suspicious occurrence — in particular, police want to see video that shows vehicles driving on a Sahali street.

On Tuesday, April 23, at about 8:30 p.m., the driver of a pickup truck stopped beside a 13-year-old girl who was walking near Gleneagles Drive and Skagit Place in Sahali. The driver claimed to be a friend of the girl’s mother. He claimed the girl’s mother had been looking for her and offered her a ride home.

The girl declined.

The girl could not see the driver because of the height of the truck, but noted he had a “gruff smoker’s voice.”

The vehicle is a white Ford four-door pickup truck. It was lifted/jacked up with very shiny chrome-coloured wheels and shiny door handles that were approximately five feet from the ground. The girl also noted the truck has very bright yellow headlights.

“Officers canvassed homes in the area, but no surveillance video was found that showed the suspect vehicle,” Shelkie said.

Kamloops RCMP wants to hear from residents who live on Gleneagles Drive between Summit Drive and Springhill Drive and have surveillance cameras that show passing vehicles.

Police can be reached at 250-828-3000.
