Thames Valley Police are investigating an incident of attempted child abduction in South Buckinghamshire.
On Sunday 21st October 2018, a report was made to Thames Valley Police regarding an incident that took place at 1.0ooam on Tuesday 4th September 2018 during which a woman picked up another woman’s two year old daughter while visiting Cliveden House, Buckinghamshire.
The incident is reported to have taken place near the children’s play area where the woman was seen walking with the child. During the incident the child was not injured.
The woman involved is described as white, aged in her thirties to early forties, had a slim to medium build, dark brown hair which was tied in a ponytail, and was wearing patterned woven trousers.
Detective Sergeant Kerry Bradfield, of Aylesbury Force CID, said: ‘We are investigating this incident and keeping an open mind about the woman’s motivation.
It is not clear if she attempted to leave the area with the child or there could be a completely innocent explanation. However due to the nature of the allegation we need to work to establish the circumstances and would like to trace the woman involved.
I’m aware that there are a number of reports posted on social media however these all appear to relate to the same incident and we do not believe there to be a series of similar incidents.
Anyone who has any information about the incident they should contact police via our non-emergency number, 101.‘
