Strange man tries to pick up child at Region 8 school

BALD KNOB, AR (KAIT) -  White County sheriff's deputies are searching for a man who tried to pick up a young child at Bald Knob Elementary School.

It happened Monday afternoon while parents were picking up their children.   Investigators say the man asked for the boy specifically by name.  When a teacher brought the child to the car, the boy said he did not know the man.  The man drove off without explanation.

All White County schools have been notified.

White County deputies and local police departments have stepped up patrols in the area.
