Deputies from the Montcalm County Sheriff's Office are investigating an attempted abduction of an 8-year-old Howard City girl.
It happened Sunday at 3 p.m. on Amy School Road at Almy Road in Reynolds Township.
The girl was walking to a friend's house when she was approached by a man in a pickup truck. The man reportedly told the girl that her aunt was in the hospital and to "get in". The girl refused and continued on to her destination, while the suspect vehicle left southbound from the intersection.
The suspect is described as a heavy set man in his late twenties or early thirties, is bald with a beard. He was wearing a black tank top and a camouflage zip up hooded sweatshirt. The suspect vehicle is believed to be a newer full sized red pickup with a standard cab, possibly a Ford.
