Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has issued an efit of a woman who approached a school boy and tried to get him into her car.
It is reported that the incident happened shortly after 7.30am on Thursday 5 November 2015. GMP received reports that an attempt had been made to abduct a 12-year-old boy, who was on his way to school at the junction of Chepstow Avenue and Firsway in Sale.
The woman, who was in a silver car, approached the boy he walked to school. She told him that she had been asked by his mother to take him to school, and that he should get in the car. The boy refused to get in the car and instead ran home. The boy was unharmed.
Police Constable Geoff Donley said: “We have been making significant enquiries over the past two and a half months to try and identify the woman involved in this incident, which has included trawling through a large amount of CCTV in the area.
“We understand that parents in Sale were extremely worried by this incident and we are committed to finding out exactly what happened here and tracing the woman from the silver car.
“Our CCTV enquiries have led us to believe that the car involved could have been either a Vauxhall Corsa or a Nissan Micra.
“It is possible that this may have been a case of mistaken identity and the woman in the car approached the wrong child, however we still cannot rule anything out at this stage. We are asking for anyone who has any information to please get in touch”.
