High River RCMP are investigating after a nine-year-old boy was allegedly approached by two men in a white minivan on Wednesday, January 24th just before 4 p.m.

The minivan pulled up next to the boy, who was walking on the sidewalk on Monteith Drive SE, between 5th Street S.E. and 1st Street S.E.  

The male passenger got out of the minivan and gestured to the boy, who thought the male was indicating for him to get into the van.  The boy immediately ran away and went home.
 
The vehicle is described as a white minivan with blue lettering on the rear side panels, no roof rack, no lettering or logos on the doors, or windows on the side.
 
The male passenger is described as brown skinned with a short white beard wearing a grey or black beanie type hat, a black, wool jacket with higher collar, possibly a pea coat style and glasses.

The male driver was only described as having dark hair and a dark short beard, with darker skin.
