Police in Milton Keynes are hunting a van driver who tried to abduct a 13 year old boy last night.
The boy was walking along Walton Street in Middleton at 6pm on Tuesday evening when a white panel van stopped and the driver beckoned to him.
When the boy went towards the vehicle, the driver shouted at him to get in the van. The boy then ran off.
The driver is white, bald and between 30 and 45 years old. He is also described as having a small head, sticking out ears and a long neck.
Det Sgt Luke Grove said: "We currently believe this is an isolated incident and there is no particular threat to young people in the area.
"Although the boy was unharmed in the incident, it is important that anyone who was in the area and saw anyone matching the description of the driver contacts me on 0845 8 505 505. If you do not want to give your name contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
