Man in ski mask wanted for trying to abduct boy, 12

SPRING GROVE – A man tried to abduct a 12-year-old boy Tuesday in an unincorporated Spring Grove subdivision, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The boy got off a school bus at North Forest and West Greenwood avenues in the Lotus Woods subdivision and was approached by a man wearing a black ski mask and driving a black work van with two rear windows, authorities said.

The driver asked the boy for directions and then offered to give him a ride home, saying he knew the boy’s mother. After the boy gave the directions and declined the ride, the driver sped off, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 847-377-4250.
