(KMOV) – Authorities are canvassing a neighborhood after a young girl was approached by a suspicious vehicle in a Troy, Missouri neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

According to Troy Police, a vehicle pulled into the driveway of a home on the 300 block of Juanita and a 7-year-old boy began talking to a young girl playing in the yard shortly before 5 p.m.

Police say the boy was in the back seat when he opened her door and asked the victim if she "wanted some candy." The girl’s father heard the commotion outside and came to investigate.

As he came outside, the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed away from the scene.

The vehicle has been described as a dark grey 4-door Nissan passenger vehicle with a white adult male, female and a boy believed to be 7 or 8-years-old in the back. No license plate information was given. The man was seen wearing a light-colored hoodie.

Authorities are at the scene working to investigate this report further. Updates were not immediately available.
