An 11-year-old boy told police he was walking Saturday on Juniata Street. He said a white cargo-style van pulled up beside him that neither had any windows nor any visible markings.
The boy told police there was an older Caucasian male who had a thin, black beard inside the van. He said the male who was wearing a black ball cap and sunglasses told him to get in and help him find his lost dog.
The boy, however, ran home and reported the incident to his father, police said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact DuBois City police.
