A suspicious person has been reported in the vicinity of Eerie Drive, between Harmony and Palmer roads. The person, a 30ish man with sandy blonde hair driving a reportedly dark green Mustang, attempted to summon a child. Reportedly, the man was seeking directions, when the child turned away to call for parents the man reportedly drove off.
Police were summoned by the child's parents. The name of the child and the parents will not be used in this report, but they did call me and are very concerned. Police searched the area for the suspicious vehicle and/or driver without result.
So keep your eyes peeled Middletown. One of the parents of the child said it is possible that the man was honestly seeking directions, but the nature of the man's hurried departure left them more than a little distressed. The event happened at about 6 p.m. this evening.
