ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION - SOUTHERN NEVADA COUNTY
This is not a story about the 2011 Taylor Lautner film. This is a sad story that took place on a rural road which took 3 days for residents to hear about the events. No one was hurt but I hear there was a very scared girl.
The details of the incident as provided:
A bald man, possibly Hispanic, with silver hoop earrings and a small patch of beard under his lower lip attempted to lure a young girl from her front yard by asking for help finding his lost dog. Fortunately, this young girl said "no!" and ran immediately for her garage to find her father. Within seconds, the man vacated the site, but luckily another child was able to get a look at the vehicle as it tore off down the road, and reported it as a black 4Runner (or like vehicle).
The incident was reported to both the sheriff's department and the CHP and has been listed as an attempted kidnapping.
If you have any information regarding this incident or a man that fits this description, please contact the Nevada County Sheriff's Department. In addition, if you see someone matching this description, please take down their license number. Furthermore, please take this opportunity to discuss "strangers" with your child. Baseball season is upon us and at any given time there could be hundreds of children running around our fields. Let's make sure that like the young girl in this case, all our children are properly equipped to handle themselves if prompted by a stranger.
