Issued 5/21/13 by John Schulz, Public Information Officer
Larimer County Sheriff's deputies and investigators were called to Carrie Martin Elementary School in Loveland at approximately 3:30 this afternoon on the report of a man trying to pick up a young girl.
A 13-year-old Loveland girl reported that she was followed by a white male with salt & pepper hair and a white or grey goatee driving a maroon car with faded paint who asked her if she needed a ride. The girl immediately ran into the school and the car sped off.
The car reportedly was a mid to late 90's mid-size sedan, maroon in color with very faded paint in spots and an unidentified graphic on the side.
Investigators are seeking the public's assistance with any information they can provide about the incident, the vehicle or the male driver. If you have information, please call Investigator Mike Byers at 970-498-5169
Parents are reminded to talk with their children about strangers following them in a car or speaking to them. Children should run away immediately and notify a responsible adult about the encounter.
Extra patrols will be scheduled in the area.
