Police are appealing for information after the attempted abduction of a schoolboy in East Ballina on Monday.
At about 4.30pm yesterday, a 12-year-old boy was walking along Anderson Street when a car pulled up alongside him.
A man allegedly opened the passenger-side front door of the car and told the boy to get into the car.
The boy ran away from the vehicle.
The man is described as being approximately 60 years old with grey hair and an average build. He was wearing a light-green-coloured mask that covered the lower part of his face.
He was driving a newer model black Ford Falcon station wagon with Queensland registration plates.
The vehicle was last seen heading north on Links Road, East Ballina.
The man was the only person inside the vehicle.
Police are investigating the incident and are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the attempted abduction to contact Richmond Local Area Command or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
