Everest Metro Police are boosting patrols in a Weston neighborhood.
Officers say there was an incident there that sounds a lot like an attempted child abduction. They tell us they don't think it really was but, they're increasing their presence just to be on the safe side.
Police say it all started Wednesday evening when a man approached a group of small children on Corozalla Drive, asking them about a snowmobile that was for sale. The kids told them they didn't know anything about it, so the man apparently asked if he could take one of the kids instead.
Officers say they believe if the man said that he may have been joking.
But, Thursday morning someone posted the incident on Facebook and it's gone viral, scaring many area parents.
Police say they don't believe it's a threat, but again are boosting patrols to be on the safe side. They say it's a difficult case to investigate because the kids are young, between four-years-old and six.
The man was driving a blue pick- up truck.
Officers ask that if you have any information about this case, you give them a call.
They say it's more important to give them a call them after this sort of incident, instead of posting it on social media.
