*Update*Hood County Child Kidnapping Incidents

The hood county sheriff’s office is warning parents to keep an eye on their children after recent kidnapping attempts.  Currently, there are two different incidents under investigation. One of the incidents involves a Hispanic male with short hair who tried to lure her 4-year-old child into his black Chevy El Camino. The other incident involved a female in a green SUV and tried to lure a 4 and 8-year-old with the ruse of petting a puppy.  Sheriff Deeds asked, “Parents please be vigilant and keep an eye on your kids, don’t give a sick and evil person the opportunity to hurt your children.”

*Update*

The Hood County sheriff’s office was able to identify the driver of the Green USV who allegedly tried to lure a 4 and 8-year-old with the ruse of petting a puppy. Apparently the driver was an 87 years old woman who didn’t realize it was inappropriate to approach the boys. The Hood County sheriff’s office said “it doesn’t appear that the woman had any ill-intent or ulterior motive towards the boys and appears to be a misunderstanding.”
