Police are appealing for witnesses after a girl was approached by a man in pick-up in a north-east town.
A man in a red pickup truck approached the girl on the A957 Slug Road between William Mackie Road and East Glebe in Stonehaven at around 4pm on Monday.
The girl in question was offered a lift by the man, but refused.
Officers are looking to trace the man involved, to determine the circumstances of the incident.
Local Policing Sergeant for Kincardine and Mearns Mark Conner said: “At this time there is nothing to suggest that anything untoward has happened however we want to trace the man who was driving the vehicle to rule this out.
“It was raining at this time on Monday and the girl was walking under an umbrella.
“It could have been that the man was genuinely trying to help but we are carrying out inquiries to establish the full circumstances.
“If you were the driver we would urge you to come forward.
“We also ask that anyone who was in the area at the time and say anything which might help us with our inquiries to contact us on 101 using reference number 2553 of 1 October.”
