CURTIS — Deputies from the Mackinac County Sheriff’s office were called to a Curtis business in Portage Township Monday around noon on a report from a woman that two subjects had attempted to abduct her child.

The woman told deputies that a man and woman approached her, stating that they were from out of town and engaged her in a conversation about dogs. They then tried to entice the three-year-old by asking if the child “wanted to see their dog,” then grabbed the child and attempted to bring the child to the vehicle.

The child’s mother was able to free her child from the woman and the vehicle fled the scene in an unknown direction. The child was unharmed.

The vehicle is described as an older model, dull red full-sized pick-up truck in good condition, with no cap, with dog proof netting and a collie in the back seat.

The make of the vehicle is unknown and it may have a Michigan “Fraternal Order of Police” specialty license plate.

The two suspects are described as:

  • white male, approximately 60-years-old, with a mustache, medium build and wearing clean clothing.
  • middle-aged white female with bleach blonde hair, heavy makeup, medium build and height, wearing a green pantsuit.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mackinac County Sheriff’s Office at (906) 643-1165.
