GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. -- The Erie County Sheriff's Office is asking for help from the public as they investigate a report of a man trying to lure a 13-year-old girl into his vehicle on Grand Island.

A mother contacted deputies after a man allegedly stopped and offered her 13-year-old daughter a ride while she was walking her bicycle down Huth Road around 12:30 p.m. Monday.

The teen told deputies the man offered to give her a ride many times, and each time she said no. They say the man then left and headed west on Huth Road.

The man is described as looking older and having a "mostly" white beard, and was driving a white, newer model Ford Explorer.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Erie County Sheriff's Office at 716-858-2903.
