DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Dutchess County Sheriff's deputies are on the lookout for a man who reportedly tried to lure a student into a car on Sunday while she was running the track at West Road School in Pleasant Valley.

Officials with the Arlington Central School District said on Facebook and the District website that the incident took place when the student was running the track in front of her mother when she was called by a man in a car in the school's parking lot.

The man, who had a large tan dog with him, is described as being a white male, in his 50s, with little to no hair, driving a light blue four-door sedan, called for the student to come to his car. The child, ran to her mother and both approached the man's car, the District said.

As they approached the car, the man drove away, officials said.

School officials are working with the Sheriff's Office on the case, along with the School Resource Office.

They are asking parents to remind their children of safety measures to take when approached by a stranger and to contact law enforcement immediately if they have concerns.
