Attempted Child Abduction
Missoula Police are investigating an attempted child abduction at Splash Montana at about 6:45 Wednesday evening.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30′s, about 5′ 10″ tall with black curly hair wearing a black t-shirt, blue jeans and dirty tennis shoes. He was driving an older VW or similar ‘boxy’ style van, dark green and described as ‘junky’. It has a spare tire on the front grill with a tan canvas cover.
