The Western Valley Region RCMP issued a media release, asking for the public’s help to identify an individual in connection with an attempted abduction in Tilley, a rural community north of Perth-Andover.

The RCMP said Western Valley Region members responded to a report at 9:40 a.m. on Sept. 4. The report said a man approached a child and tried to get them into his vehicle on Walker Road in Tilley.

The RCMP ask anyone who witnessed a man driving a white vehicle in the Walker Road area of Tilley on Sept. 4, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., or who may have security camera or dash cam footage from this time period, to contact the Western Valley Region RCMP at 506-423-8719.

They explained the information may be helpful to the investigation.
