Police have released photos of a person of interest and car they say might have been involved in an attempt to lure a young girl into a car as she walked out of a Walgreens in Merriam.
The incident occurred about 7:15 p.m. Saturday as the 12-year-old girl was coming out of the drugstore at 8701 Johnson Drive.
A man allegedly pulled up to the store’s exit and told the girl to get in and he would give her a ride home.
The girl, however, went inside the store and called her mother. Her mother called police. Police searched the area but couldn’t find the car.
The man was described as a white male, 50 to 60 years old, weighing about 200 pounds. He had gray or white hair and facial hair. He was wearing a dark baseball cap, dark blue shirt and black basketball shorts.
Anyone with information is asked to call Merriam police dispatchers at 913-782-0720.
