CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Carson City Sheriff’s Office warns of a possible child luring incident Monday in south Carson City.

About 11:30 a.m. October 2, 2017, a person the sheriff’s office described as a young female was walking near Koontz Lane and Hillview Drive when a man pulled up in a copper-colored Ford Ranger pickup that was rusted and had chipped paint.

The man asked her to help him find a missing dog. When she declined, the man said if she did not help find the dog, it could get hurt. She used her cell phone to pretend to place a call and the man then drove north on Saliman Road past Seeliger Elementary School.

The sheriff’s office described the man as white and 40 years old to 50 years old with dark hair pulled back in a ponytail.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Morgan Tucker at 775-283-7858, Capt. Brian Humphrey at 775-283-7850, or dispatch at 775-887-2677.

The sheriff’s office wants to remind parents about the dangers of talking to adults and of walking alone.

They say parents can also prevent abductions and more information is available here.
