[August 20]

Police need the community’s help identifying an attempted kidnapping suspect.

On August 20, 2020 between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m., an unknown adult male tried to convince a child to enter his vehicle. The incident occurred in a neighborhood near Timberline Road and Drake Road. An adult neighbor witnessed the interaction and intervened, at which time the man drove away. Patrol officers searched around the city but were unable to locate the suspect. Other area law enforcement agencies were also advised to be on the lookout.

The suspect was described as a white male in his 40s, heavyset, gray hair, wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt, and hat. He was driving a light gray or silver early 2000’s minivan (see photo) with a bed and multiple possessions inside, as well as a white dog.

“We are extremely grateful to the neighbor who noticed a concerning situation and stepped in,” said FCPS Criminal Investigations Lieutenant Jeremy Yonce. “We need our community to share this information so we can identify and find this suspect.”

Anyone with information about incident or suspect, or home security video that may have captured the vehicle, is asked to contact Detective Kelsey Skaar at 970-221-6514. People who wish to remain anonymous may also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.
