Bullitt Co. investigators say incident not related to child abduction attempt

Posted: Updated:

MT. WASHINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bullitt County investigators say the woman who approached two children at a Mt. Washington home is not the suspect who tried to lure two girls into her car last week.

Friday afternoon, police say a woman called Mt. Washington dispatch to say she was driving a red Toyota car around 6 p.m. Thursday while helping her neighbor search for her son. Police say the woman and her neighbor later located the son.

Detective Scotty McGaha tells WDRB that this means the incidents are unrelated but that investigators are still looking for the woman driving a red sports car who tried to lure two girls into her car.

Earlier Friday, a couple of children claimed they were approached by a woman in a red Mitsubishi Eclipse or Toyota sports car.   

Initially, Bullitt County Sheriff's detectives said they believed that woman was the person who tried to lure a 10-year-old girl and a friend into her car in Highland Springs in Mt. Washington.

McGaha said, "If they see a vehicle matching that description -- a red sports car -- then try to get the plate number."

Police are still keeping an eye on certain Mt. Washington neighborhoods.

"We have had extra patrols up in there and I think Mt. Washington has also been watching that area for us," said McGaha.

The woman from last week's incident is described as having a thin build, being in her 30s or 40s, with short, dark hair.
