Police hunt still on in Bello

POLICE are yet to make a breakthrough in their hunt for two predators who tried to lure a schoolgirl into their car at Bellingen last week.

“We've had no reports of any further incidents but we're obviously still wanting to hear from the public,” Coffs/Clarence crime manager, Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay, said.

“We would like to remind parents to take the opportunity to warn their children not to get into cars with people they don't know.

“Also, children should report suspicious incidents to their parents or teachers.”

At 8.25am last Wednesday, an 11-year-old St Mary's Primary student was walking in Bowra Street when a car stopped beside her.

One of the men asked her to get in, but she refused and kept walking to school.

The car, described as early model pale blue station wagon in good condition, possibly an EH Holden, was last seen driving east in Bowra St. Both men are described as aged between 50 and 60.
