Ohio AG issues child enticement warning on Thursday - WSFA.com Montgomery Alabama news.

Van found in Price Hill unrelated to enticement case

(FOX19) -

A van that was found in Price Hill on Friday morning is unrelated to a string of child enticement cases.

Officers responded to the Rapid Run apartments, but determined the white panel van was not the suspect's van.

Investigators are looking into eight child enticement cases in Ohio, Michigan and West Virginia, including two in Hamilton.

The suspect description is the same in each case.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine issued an alert on Thursday, reminding parents to talk with their children about how to respond if approached by a suspicious person.

In several cases, the suspect approached girls and boys between the ages of nine and 15 while driving a white, windowless panel van, which could be a commercial vehicle. The driver has then encouraged the kids to talk with him and get into the van.

At the time of most incidents, the children had been walking home after school.

"Luckily none of these children gave in to these attempts," said Attorney General DeWine.  "They knew exactly what to do."

If the cases are connected, agents suspect that the individual is someone whose job requires him to travel frequently.

The suspect is described as:

 • White Male
 • Mid to late 40s or early 50s
 • 5'8" - 5'9"
 • Brown hair
 • Possible mustache
 • Wearing a baseball hat with glasses or sunglasses

Anyone involved in a situation of this nature should immediately contact their local law enforcement agency.  Anyone with additional information regarding previous crimes similar to the described incidents should also contact their local police or BCI at 855-BCI-OHIO.
