On Monday evening Ithaca Police were alerted to a suspicious minivan trailing two young girls near Richard Place and Sunrise Road. The vehicle, described as a white Dodge or Chrysler van, was seen multiple times near the juveniles without making any contact. A man with a beard, wearing a safety vest, was driving, and a teenage girl was also spotted inside the van.


Despite extensive efforts by law enforcement to locate the vehicle, the search yielded no results. The police are conducting a thorough investigation and urge anyone with information to come forward.

The Ithaca Police Department emphasizes the importance of safety for children walking alone and advises parents to educate their kids on precautions. They recommend walking in groups, staying in well-lit areas, and maintaining communication with parents about their whereabouts.
