Lansdale police on alert after report of van following child

LANSDALE, Pa. - A Montgomery County community is on alert after a report of a fourth grade girl being followed by a van while walking home from school.

Police said the girl's mother contacted police after the girl reported being followed from the area of Oak Park Elementary School in Lansdale by a black and red older-model conversion van for several blocks Tuesday afternoon.

The child stated that the driver, whom she never saw, never attempted to make contact, but whenever the child increased or decreased her walking speed, the van followed suit.

The child walked to a nearby friend's house, at which time the van reportedly left the area. Police said they notified school officials of the reported incident.

The investigation is continuing.
