LARAMIE, Wyo. — Police in Laramie are asking for the public's help in finding a man they believe tried to abduct a boy on Monday afternoon.
Police say the 3-year-old boy was playing in an unfenced yard in Laramie when the man grabbed him by the hand and started to walk away. The man let the boy go and walked away after the boy's caregiver called to the man.
Police searched but failed to find the man.
Police say the man is in his late 30s or early 40s, about 5-foot-10, with a stocky build and short, black hair. He was wearing a gray T-shirt, blue jeans with black, lace-up boots.
The man may have been driving a small pickup truck with peeling, gray primer paint with green paint showing underneath.
