Kamloops Mounties want to speak with the driver of a white car after a possible child-luring attempt in Aberdeen.
On Monday at about 6:45 p.m., two young girls were walking on Linfield Drive near Pacific Way elementary when the driver of the car stopped near them and its male driver asked if they wanted a ride.
“The girls immediately left the area and went home,” Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said in a police press release.
Shelkie described the driver as “non-white, approximately 20 years old, with short hair.”
The vehicle was a four-door, white car with non-tinted windows.
“It is unknown what the intent of the driver was, but this is a good time for parents to discuss stranger danger with their children,” Shelkie said.
Police advised parents to remind their children that if they feel something is suspicious, they should say no, leave the area and go home (or to a safe place) and tell an adult what happened.
“In this situation, these children did exactly the right thing,” Shelkie said.
Anyone with information about the driver is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
