Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for a man who allegedly offered a ride home to a girl near Golden Ears elementary.

Police received a report about a man in the 23000-block area of 118 Avenue around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, March 11.

Police said the man offered a ride home to a 12-year-old girl, who said “no” and made it home safely.

The vehicle left the area without further incident.

Police have released a composite sketch of the person of interest, and an image of the suspect vehicle from the area.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 35 to 45 years old, balding with lighter grey hair, clean shaven and wearing a grey zip-up hoody.
