Montcalm-County-Sheriff-OfficeREYNOLDS TWP.,  Mich (March 10, 2014) — A man tried to abduct an 8-year-old girl along Amy School and Almy roads and by telling her that a relative was in the hospital.

According to the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department, the girl, who is from Howard City, was walking to a friend’s house at 3 p.m. on March 9, when the suspect approached her, saying that her aunt was in the hospital and to “get in”.

Police say the girl refused and continued to her friend’s house, while the man left southbound from that intersection.

The suspect is described as heavy set, in his late twenties or early thirties, and bald with a beard. He was last seen wearing a black tank top with a camouflage zip-up hooded sweatshirt. It’s believed he was driving a newer full-sized red pick up with a standard cab that’s possibly a Ford.

The girl wasn’t hurt and the Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

    First an 8 year oirl should not be walking anywhere alone! What is the parents to caught up in internet or T.V to take this child to her friends? Out in the country it is a little worse then the city as in the city there are more people around but even that children must be attended that is the way society is now a days. I would like to ask this childs parents or any parents are we so caught in our lifes that we cant protect our children to take 10 minutes to take your child to their friends.Now what would have happened if this child had been abducted?Then this or any Parent would have to spend time worrying and searching for their child when it would have took 10 minutes to make sure they arrived safe.Our society needs to start punishing these perpetrators if they attempt to abduct a child or another human being then lock them up for life or put a monitor on them for life so they can be tracked forever! Rights they would give up them rights if they attempt to has come time we stop worrying about their rights when they hurt or abduct another human. Something needs to change because it keeps happening.
