Aug 19 2012
The RCMP and military police are investigating the possible attempted abduction of a nine-year-old girl on the Canadian Forces Base in Comox.
A young 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, believed to live 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 about 50, had a scar on his left cheek and was clean shaven. He was wearing jeans and a navy blue T-shirt.
The passenger had a star tattoo on the left side of his neck. He 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.
