Aboutt 10 a.m. near Meridian Middle School, a 16-year-old Stevenson High School student walking near at Prairie Lane and Edenvale Drive saw a white 4-door car parked on the east side of Prairie, according to a Buffalo Grove police release.

The release said the motorist, a 60-year-old man, asked the boy if he needed a ride, then opened the passenger door and told the student to get in.

The boy ran to Stevenson and contacted his father. There was a delay in the report but officers searched the area for the vehicle, but nothing was found.

  • the truth

    No white 4 door sedan with anyone around 60 years of age in all of B.G. or surrounding areas?!?! Put down the donuts and keep looking fellas

    ok dont get why people waste their time making omments about the observation of an age. How bout cant beleive theirs sick people in this world who would hurt children. and I have all respect for police officers but would they waste any time if this was their child? Men or women who prey on children need to be found and punished FULLY by the law!

    I agree… Joe’s comment was stupid and insensitive.

    There are far too many nuts than police. Police could spend a little more time near the schools when kids are coming and going.
