Police said that a 10-year-old Fredericktown boy was able to get away Thursday when two men in a pickup truck stopped and told him to get in.
The child was not harmed though his mother took him to an emergency room because he was so upset.
Police said those same men tried to abduct another person in Viburnam around the same time period
Bonne Terre Police Chief Doug Calvert says the same suspects may have tried to coax a 7-year-old girl into their truck in mid-May. That child also was able to run away.
The vehcile police are looking for is a dark colored, possibly black, ford ranger pick up.
The best description is of the driver who is slim....with dark hair, possibly long, and a beard or goatee.
