Police are on the lookout for a man who attempted to abduct a 12-year-old boy Tuesday.
Michigan State Police troopers from the Lapeer Post say a man tried to lure the teenage boy into his vehicle near the town of Silverwood.
Silverwood is about 10 miles east of Mayville in Lapeer County.
The boy was apparently cleaning out a shed at his home when the man allegedly approached him. The suspect then told the boy that he could take him to a better place and that's when the boy ran inside his home.
The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 30 and 40. He is approximately 5'11'' with an athletic build. He has short, dark hair. He also has a large scar on the right side of his neck.
He is believed to be driving a white, full-sized pickup truck. The exact make and model is not known at this time.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Michigan State Police Lapeer Post at 810-664-2905.
