SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in Sioux City are investigating an attempted abduction near a park.

Sioux City television station KTIV reports (https://bit.ly/1ik79ls ) that a 12-year-old boy told police he was walking home from Highview Park shortly after 6 p.m. on Friday when a man in a black ski mask tried to lure him into a van.

The boy reported that the van was white with a blue air freshener inside. Police are still searching for the suspect.

Sioux City Police Sgt. Kevin Heineman is urging parents to remind their children not to talk to strangers and to report any suspicious activity to an adult.
