Police are searching for a man who, they say, attempted to lure a child into a car Sunday evening.

A 9-year old boy was riding his bike in the area of Timbersmith Drive and Beckler Lane when he was approached by a white male driving a newer red four-door sedan about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, police say.

The boy told police the man offered him candy and asked him to get in the car. Police report the boy left the area and told an adult about the incident.

Police said the boy had ridden to a park near his house to see if any of his friends were there but returned home when he didn’t see anyone he knew at the park. Police said he was approached on his way home.

Police report an investigation is ongoing.

Investigators are urging anyone with information to contact police at 740-203-1111.
