CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & - At approximately 2:52 p.m. today, deputies responded to the area of Telegraph Street and Robinson Road in Carson City in reference to a possible attempted child abduction report. A female Carson High School student was walking home from Carson High and was followed by an older model yellow two-door sedan vehicle driven by an unknown older male. 

The vehicle followed the victim for several blocks. The female victim heard the vehicle roll down the front passenger window. The victim heard the driver say in a loud voice, "Get in, I'm giving you a ride." The female victim ran from the vehicle screaming. The vehicle followed the victim a short distance and left the area. 

The vehicle was described as an older two-door yellow sedan with faded paint on the hood area and a possible fabric top. It had two front square head lights with the driver's side headlight either tinted or faded and black newer leather interior. The driver was described to be wearing a dark brown colored sweatshirt with writing on the right sleeve area. 

Anyone with information that would lead to identifying the vehicle/male driver please contact Detective Sal Acosta at the Carson City Sheriff's Office immediately (775)283 -7855 or dispatch (775) 887-2008.

This incident can be prevented from happening if the child has something that can be used during emergency situation. I would like to recommend the safety solution that I am using with my daughter, it is a safety protection which is very helpful and it's called panic button. By just simply pressing it the call would go directly to the safety network and can ask immediate help from the nearest 911 in the area. For you to check it out
