Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports Deputies responded to a call from a concerned mother following an encounter her thirteen-year old daughter had with an older white male driving a white Explorer. 

The daughter detailed how she was walking her bicycle along Huth Road in Grand Island when an older male stopped and offered to give her a ride.  The teenager rejected multiple offers for a ride and the subject left heading westbound on Huth Road.  The incident occurred around 12:30 P.M. Monday. 

The female described the subject as an older white male with a “mostly” white beard, and he was driving a newer model Ford Explorer.  If anyone has information about this incident, they are encouraged to contact the Erie County Sheriff’s Office at 858.2903
