KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The Klamath County School District (KCSD) alerted parents on Friday after being notified of an apparent abduction attempt on a student walking home from the bus stop.

The junior high school student had been walking home from a bus stop on Thursday in the neighborhood north of Shasta elementary school, according to KCSD. After getting off the bus, the student was approached by a man driving a brown SUV with a silver stripe — possibly a Jeep — who tried to convince the student to get into his vehicle.

"The school district alerted parents of the incident through its One Call Now system and posted an alert on the district’s webpage," KCSD said in a statement.

The District did not comment on the status of an investigation, but said that the Klamath County Sheriff's Office would have charge of any such investigation.

KCSD asked parents to please speak with their children and remind them of safety tips regarding being approached by strangers. Some suggestions included:

 • Walk in groups or with friends
 • Be alert to vehicles that might be following them
 • Do not talk to anyone that might approach them
 • Share some tips to look for: someone saying they lost a pet, looking for a lost child, asking for help to complete a task – these are adult responsibilities and not your kids
 • If near a public place, enter the establishment and report the concern to an adult.
 • If you see a suspicious vehicle or suspicious behavior, please report it to local law enforcement.
