Morgan City Police are asking residents to be on the lookout for a man driving a white van who asked a young boy if wanted a ride around 6:20 Monday night. The boy was walking on Mayon St. when the driver stopped and offered him a ride. "There was no physical contact made between the driver or the juvenile, only verbal conversation. The van was described as a white cargo panel van. It had no side windows. No license plate information was not available," Asst. Chief Glenn Blanco said. Also, the make and model are unknown. A passerby who knows the child stopped to see what was happening. The driver is described as a heavy set white man with long brown-blonde hair and a light goatee.
Anyone who saw the van in the area or anyone who recognizes the description of the van or man should call Morgan City Police at 985-380-4605.
