Mother reports child was attempted abduction victim
ANTRIM — Police were notified Friday of an attempted child abduction on Clinton Road, when a woman called to report a driver had apparently attempted to lure her daughter to the vehicle.
According to the caller, her daughter was outside playing in the front yard, when the driver of a green SUV or wagon pulled up and stopped on the side of the road. The daughter told her mother the driver told her to “come here.”
The woman said her daughter ran inside; there was no additional information about the driver’s appearance or license plate.
Officer Brian Lord responded to the residence after issuing a “be on the lookout” for the vehicle. Officer Lord checked the area for signs of the vehicle’s whereabouts, but made no contact with anyone or anything fitting the description given to police.
A message left Monday morning for Officer Lord seeking more information was not returned to the Ledger-Transcript by press time.
Anyone with further information is urged to call the Antrim Police Department.
As of Monday, Police Chief Scott Lester had yet to speak with Officer Lord regarding the situation. Together they will decide whether to treat this as a legitimate threat or a misunderstanding, according to a representative of the Police Department . Lester had no comment when contacted about the matter Monday.
