Police need your help finding the three men that attempted to abduct three girls in Burton while they were waiting for the school bus.

Mercedes, Missie-Anna, and McKayla were all waiting for their bus Monday morning near the corner of Atherton and Kleinspell St.

That's when a light blue Suburban pulled up and with three men inside, one of which was wearing a ski mask.  The girls mother, Jerrica, screamed for her husband and ran outside, which scared the van away.

Police are now looking for the van, and its three occupants. The vehicle is being described as a late 90's, full size, light blue GMC Suburban.  The men were described as African-American men, but not many other details were available.

If you know anything, or see anything suspicious please contact your local police department.  Make sure that your children know the risks involving strangers when you are not around.
