BUTTE FALLS, Ore. — The Jackson County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a young girl reported a possible abduction attempt in Butte Falls on Monday.

Deputies said that an 11-year-old girl was approached by a man she didn't know as she walked out of a store in Butte Falls near the intersection of Broad and Fir. The man tried to get her in his vehicle, reportedly offering her a drink because "she looked thirsty" and then suggesting that he take her home in his truck.

The girl went back inside the store until she saw that the man was gone, then she asked an adult that she knew to walk her home.

"The male was in a light blue, beat-up truck that appeared to be either a regular two-wheel drive pickup or 'lowered,'" the Sheriff's Office said. "The suspicious person was described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, about 6-feet tall, 'really skinny,' with short blonde hair, and a goatee."

Anyone with information on the identity or location of the man or vehicle, is asked to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 541-774-8333 or ECSO dispatch at 541-776-7206 to speak to a deputy directly.
