BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office continues to search for a suspicious man seen near Tumalo Road and 97th Street. A 14-year-old girl told deputies she was approached by a stranger yesterday afternoon, after getting off the school bus. He asked her if she wanted a ride and became angry after she repeatedly told him "no." He quickly left the area.
He's described as a white male around 60 years old, with a full white beard, wearing a blue hooded shirt. He was driving a teal four-door passenger car.
Deputies responded to the area, but were unable to locate the man or the car. Anyone who may have seen him or who has any information on the case is asked to call the sheriff's office at 541-693-6911.
