Police Warn Parents of Potential Kidnapper in Otsego County

Police in Otsego County want parents to be aware of a potential kidnapper in the area. Last night, just after 6:00, a mother called police saying someone tried to abduct her 10-year-old son on Pine Briar Lane in Hayes Township. The boy was walking alone on the road, when he says someone tried pulling him into a car. He managed to get away and run home. The suspect is described as a white male in his 40's, over 6' tall and skinny with medium length black hair. The boy described the vehicle as a silver sedan, similar to a Grand Prix size vehicle, with black leather interior and a lot of trash inside. Police want all parents to remind their children not to talk to strangers. If you have any information, call the Michigan State Police, Gaylord Post at (989) 732-5141. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details after spending the day in the area.
