MAPLETON, Iowa — Authorities have been searching for a man or men who tried to abduct girls in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska.
The Monona County Sheriff's Office said a girl was approached about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the city park in Mapleton. Sheriff Jeff Pratt said Wednesday that the girl didn't get into the man's dirty, light blue pickup truck and was not hurt.
On Monday, an 11-year-old girl was approached by a man in a similar truck at a beach at the Lakeland community south of Blair in Washington County, Neb. She ran home and wasn't harmed.
Nebraska and Iowa authorities said they're not sure whether the incidents are connected, but they're sharing information. — AP
