POLICE are appealing for help in tracing three men following another attempted abduction in Ellesmere Port.
At about 6.30pm on Monday (March 22) a nine year-old boy was walking along Merseyton Road, with his brother just ahead of him, when a grey-coloured car pulled up next to him.
One of the men shouted through the window for the boy to get in the car.
The boy began to run off as one of the men got out of the car. The male quickly returned to the vehicle, which drove away towards the motorway bridge.
The latest incident follows two abduction attempts last month – both by people in Ford town cars – in Luton Road and Rugby Road, Ellesmere Port.
A Cheshire Police spokesman said: “Parents need to remain vigilant, especially as we are now entering the Easter term holidays, and children will be playing out on the streets.
“We would advise all parents to know where there children are, and to advise them on personal safety and being aware of strangers.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information should contact police on 0845 458 0000.
