Police continue to seek information on a person of interest in a possible attempted child abduction. 

On Saturday, May 28 at 7 p.m. investigators said a young boy and his grandmother were at the Volunteers of America Thrift Store at 2520 E. Main Street in Corunna when the boy was approached by an older man.

The man asked the child his name and said he wanted to buy him a toy. Later, police report the man had a store employee page the boy to the front of the store.

When the boy’s grandmother approached employees with the child, the man left.

Investigators initially believed the situation could be linked to an incident in the community. 

Police report a few weeks ago officers were contacted by a resident who said he was approached by a man while outside his home in Chesaning.

The man was driving a dark blue, newer model pickup truck with a ladder rack on the back and asked the resident’s name, how old he was and where he worked.

The man said he was trying to get someone to work for him.

He was described as having a large belly and well-groomed goatee.

Police recently released a surveillance video photo of a man they call a "person of interest" in the Corunna case and now say they do not believe he is the same man involved in the suspicious incident in Chesaning. 

Investigators have received several tips and one possible name in the case, but said everything has led to a dead end. 

If you see anyone matching the description, please call 911 immediately.
