The RCMP and military police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction of a nineyear-old girl at Canadian Forces Base in Comox.
The girl was riding her bike back from the Glacier Gardens Arena and Recreation Centre at 19 Wing Comox about 4 p.m. Friday when a blue van with two men in it slowed down.
One of the men allegedly asked the girl: "Have you ever been kidnapped before?"
The girl, who lives in military housing on the base, rode home and told her mother, who reported the incident to military police, said Capt. Julian White.
The girl gave detailed descriptions of the men.
The driver was white, about 50 years of age, had a scar on his left cheek and was clean-shaven. He was wearing jeans and a navyblue T-shirt.
The passenger had a star tattoo on the left side of his neck. He was white, had blond hair, a moustache, a small scar under his lip. He was wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt.
The vehicle driven by the men is described as a blue cargo-style Chevrolet Astro Van with windows on the rear doors and panels on the sides, White said.
