Milford Police Investigating Suspicious Vehicle After Student Contacted Walking To School

On 03.06.2020 Milford Police were notified about a dark red or maroon work style fan, possibly a Ford Econoline, that attempted to communicate with a student walking to school in the area of North Street and Northwest 2nd Street. The operator has been described as a white male with black hair, wearing black clothing. The operator made comments to the student that led the student to believe he was encouraging them to get in the van. The student was alarmed and ran away, eventually making it home and notifying a parent. The parent immediately notified police. A thorough search of the area by officers and school staff was unable to locate the vehicle. Schools in other areas of the City were also patrolled. Milford Police are urging anyone in the area to check any outside camera they may have on their property in that area to report any findings. Anyone with information about this incident can call 302.422.8081 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.TIP.3333. Tips can also be submitted online at MilfordPoliceDE.org/TIPS .
