Cherokee County authorities are investigating a possible child abduction attempt that happened Wednesday in Marcus.
The county sheriff says an unknown female driving a newer body style white Chevy Impala drove up to children playing near Main Street in Marcus and stated that she had been instructed by the kids’ parents to pick them up.
The children did not get into the vehicle and ran and alerted authorities.
The suspect is described as an older white female with brown and grey hair.
