Omaha police are seeking the public's help in locating a third child who may have been the intended victim of an attempted kidnapping Saturday. 

Police say they believe a teenage girl riding a bicycle Saturday about 10:15 a.m. between 65th and 72nd Streets near Blondo Street may have been accosted by two men. She was not kidnapped.

Police believe the same men tried to accost another teen girl that day and did grab a 5-year-old before being stopped by the child's father. The men are in jail.

Police are asking anyone in the area with video surveillance outside their homes to check their videos. If you have information or know who the bicyclist is, police ask that you call the Police Child Victims Unit at 402-444-5636.
