 • Webster City Police keeping close eye on students after reported abduction attempts in Boone,Webster and Greene Counties.

 Webster City Police continue to monitor the reports from three central Iowa counties after attempted child abductions were reported on Sunday and Monday. Officers will keep a close eye on school grounds in the city in the coming weeks. Last Sunday the Webster County Sheriff's Department reported two different girls were targeted in separated incidents. The first abduction was reported in Gowrie at 2:50 Sunday afternoon and later that same day in Dayton at 5:09 p.m. Webster County Sheriff James Stubbs said a 13 year old girl reported a man wearing a ski mask came from behind some bushes and approached her at Brockett Park in Gowrie. The girl ran north to the business area on Market Street. In Dayton a five year old girl was riding her bicycle near Third Street Northeast and Fifth Avenue Northeast. The girl told sheriff's deputies that a white van pulled over near her and a man wearing a ski mask followed her on foot. She reported the man was talking to someone in the van. Both children are okay. Anyone with information on these incidents should contact Webster County Crimestoppers at 515-573-1444. A similar incident occured in Grand Junction on Monday and in Boone on Monday evening. Webster City Police Chief Shiloh Mork said officers will continue to keep a close eye on these reports in preventing a similar incident in Webster City.
