Yesterday afternoon the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of an attempted child abduction at the Bonaparte city park. The report was made by an 11 year old female who reported being near the boatramp when she was approached by an older white male in a van. Several deputies responded to the area and were not able to locate the described vehicle. An interview with the juvenile was also conducted. Over the course of the investigation video surviellance footage of the park/boatramp area was obtained. At this time it appears that the incident was a false report. Never the less we encourage everyone to be vigilant, and report any suspicious activity near parks, playgrounds, etc.
