Thames Valley Police have moved to reassure the public following an incident of attempted child abduction in Chesham.
At around 7.00pm on Monday 11th August 2014 a 13-year-old girl was walking along Pheasant Rise between Garret Close and Five Acres in Chesham when an older style black Ford Focus drew up alongside her.
The car stopped and, while the driver stayed in his seat, the other occupant, a rear seat passenger, got out of the back of the car and encouraged the girl to enter his vehicle. She did not enter the vehicle and then the car drove up Pheasant Rise. The girl was not injured.
Detectives are working to try to locate the men who were in the car to establish the circumstances of the incident.
The driver is described as mixed race, aged around 25 years old, with short black shaved hair. He was wearing a blue hooded top with a zip up the front and black trousers and wore a white watch on his right hand.
The man in the back seat is described as mixed race, aged about 25 years old, with short black shaved hair. He was wearing a red hooded top with a zip up the front.
