POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Polk County investigators are looking into a suspicious Davenport incident. Around 4:10 p.m. Tuesday an 11-year-old girl got off her bus and started walking eastbound along the Ronald Reagan Parkway.
A car traveling westbound pulled up next to the girl, deputies said.
The car is a 2000 white, four-door model with tinted windows, black rims and a black back bumper. Deputies say a passenger in the car told the girl, “Your mom is in the hospital, and she sent us to get you.”
That man is described as white and in his late 40s to early 50s. He has short hair and a salt-and-pepper goatee. He’s either sunburned or has a red complexion, and was wearing a dark green T-shirt with orange lettering on the front.
The girl ran away, and the car made a U-turn, traveling westbound on the Ronald Reagan Parkway, deputies said.
If you have information, call the Polk County Sheriff’s Office at (863) 298-6200. Or, call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.
