Police seek help in abduction attempts

Police issued an urgent request Thursday for possible information about two recent complaints of attempts to abduct young girls in Liberty.

On March 6, a 10-year-old girl reported that a white man in a maroon Pontiac pulled up next to her and asked her to help find his cell phone, according to a state police news release.

The girl became suspicious and ran away, state police said.

On Tuesday, a gray-haired man driving a gray Ford Escort tried to talk a 10-year-old girl into getting into his vehicle, but she also ran to safety, state police said.

Police asked that anyone with information about the cases call state police at 1-800-222-5555 or Liberty police at (606) 787-9411.
