Police are investigating after two young girls say a man tried to abduct them in Des Peres.
The girls told police they were playing in front of their house in the Claychester neighborhood when a man in a dark blue Buick motioned for them to come over.
Authorities say the girls ran inside and told their father and the car drove off slowly. Police searched the area but did not find anything.
“It may be harmless, but if this vehicle is seen in the area we just want our residents to know about it and can contact the police department,” said Capt. Charles Milano with the Des Peres Police Department.
The girls say the man was white and about 45 to 50 years old.
