School officials on alert after abduction attempt in Wellington

WELLINGTON, FL (AP)-  Reports of a man attempting to lure two students into his car have parents and officials at dozens of western Palm Beach County schools on alert.

The Palm Beach Post reports no students were injured or abducted in the incidents reported last week. At least two principals sent letters home, asking parents to caution their children.

Osceola Creek Middle School principal Dan Frank urged parents to talk to children about stranger danger.

Last week a 14-year-old girl told police a car followed her to the bus stop and a man got out, opened his trunk and told her he wanted to show her something. He asked which school she attended. That afternoon a similar car followed another student from a different school. He offered that student a ride home.
