Police are looking for a suspicious man who asked a group of students whether they wanted a ride. Police report that on Wednesday, just after 8:30am, near the bus stop on Veterans Way and West Street South, some school aged children were observed speaking to a man in a pickup truck.
The driver, who is described as being a middle aged male with a mustache and dark hair, was overheard asking the students if they wanted a ride. He was operating what is believed to be a grey Ford pickup truck and he had a small white dog with him.
Police were contacted and immediately attended the area, but the pickup truck was not located.
The Huntsville OPP is hoping to speak to the students that were at the pickup truck speaking the male.
Police are asking parents to speak to their children about being approached by strangers. They should encourage their children to attempt to get a licence plate of the vehicle if they can and to contact the OPP immediately. The OPP's website, www.opp.ca, contains a number of useful resources, tips and links that parents may find helpful.
