FORT MYERS, Fla. — Fort Myers Police are looking for anyone with information on a stranger danger incident in Fort Myers.

Police say a nine-year-old male was dropped off at his bus stop near 3081 Central Avenue.

He reported that a gray Subaru SUV type vehicle pulled up beside him.

The driver was described as a black male with a short beard, shoulder-length dreadlocks, with tattoos on his arms and hands and the passenger was a black female with shoulder-length red hair, a camouflage shirt, and one gold tooth.

The female offered the boy candy if he would get into the car with them; he refused and started to run away. The couple then drove off in their vehicle. He made it safely to his home and reported the incident to his family.

If anyone in the area knows the vehicle or couple, they are urged to contact Fort Myers Police Detective Myra King at (239) 321-8016 or email
