GEORGETOWN TWP. — Police are looking for the occupants of a white work van that stopped near some young girls late last week in eastern Ottawa County.

The three girls, ages 10-12, were riding bicycles in the 3600 block of Port Sheldon Street in Georgetown Township at about 4 p.m. Friday when the van passed them and then stopped, said Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

Two men got out of the van and approached the girls, but the girls rode away on their bikes, Bennett said. The men then got back in the van and left.

The van is described as a newer work vehicle with no windows and a ladder on top. It had a square blue logo on the side with white lettering.

The suspects are two white men in their late 30s to early 40s. One was about 6 feet tall and husky, and he had a thick beard. The other man was about 5-feet-8, thin and wearing dark coveralls.

Anyone with information on this vehicle is asked to call Silent Observer at 877-887-4536, or leave a tip online at mosotips.com.

The incident remains under investigation.
