ORIGINAL STORY: The Abilene Police Department is asking for the public's help after a suspicious incident was reported by a group of children.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 8, a group of children playing outdoors in the 1100 block of Glendale Drive in north Abilene reported a young white female, around age 7, with black or brown hair, got into a dark blue van with a red stripe on the hood.

The boys told police there were two adult men in the van, and the girl did not want to get in. The driver of the van was possibly Hispanic and the passenger white.

The APD said it does not have any reports of a missing child related to this incident. A canvass of the area for information and evidence of a crime continues.

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call the non-emergency number at 325-673-8331, or if it is an emergency, 9-1-1.
