EVANS, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Evans are searching for a man who tried to lure a child into his pickup early Friday morning.

Investigators said about 6:30 a.m. Friday, a child had just left home and was walking to the bus stop and was approached by a suspicious male in a pickup truck.

The boy was walking from his home in the 3300 block of Coyote Lane when a man in a brown, full-size pickup truck, possibly a 2000 or newer Chevrolet, with an extended cab and tinted windows stopped near the child.

The man made motions gesturing the child to come to the truck. The child’s parents saw the incident and walked out of their home. The man then drove away.
