AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Amarillo Police want to remind parents of basic safety rules when it comes to children after a child was coaxed into a car by a stranger Sunday morning.
The incident happened in 800 block of south Maryland just before 10. Police say a Hispanic male in a gray four door vehicle asked the child to get into the car and help him find a dog.
The female child agreed, but got out a block away and went home. The child was not injured.
This incident remains under investigation.
With children being outside so much more in the summer, it's a good idea to remind them of basic safety rules: Don't speak to or approach an unknown adult that asks for help.
Don't get into a vehicle with an unknown adult. Remind them to tell their parent or guardian immediately if someone tries to get them to get into a vehicle with them.
Teach children that any adult or older child that wants them to go anywhere without their parent's permission could be a dangerous stranger.
