The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who investigators believe tried to kidnap a child over the weekend.
According to Sheriff Jim Davis, an 8-year-old was playing in a yard in the Ruebush Road and Highland Road area of the county on Sunday afternoon, when a green car pulled up, and a man in the car wearing a mask and red baseball cap ordered the child to get in the car.
The child ran into the house, and the man in the car drove off.
A witness told investigators that a man wearing a ski mask and a red cap drove off in a green Dodge Neon.
The sheriff's office has increased deputy patrols in the area, and has asked neighboring police agencies about similar incidents.
