Police are searching for a man after reports that a 12-year-old boy was approached at Ocean Shores, near Byron Bay, on Saturday.

A 12-year-old boy was walking near the intersection of Rangle Road and Kallaroo Circuit, Ocean Shores, about 4.30pm when a blue single-cabin utility approached him.

Police have been told the driver asked the boy to get in the car.

The boy ran away and the incident was reported to police.

Officers from Tweed Byron Local Area Command attended, and are appealing for information about a man who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The man is described as about 45-years-old, with a medium build, short black hair, black stubble on his face and wearing large black sunglasses.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information that may assist with the investigation, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
