Police are looking for a man said to have offered a young girl a ride home from school in Flaxmere today.
The nine-year-old girl told police she was walking home when the man, driving a blue car, pulled over on Peterhead Avenue between 3pm and 3.30pm.
He is described as having white hair, a white moustache and a white beard.
He had four other students from a local school in the car at the time.
The school has been contacted and no other issues have been raised but police would still like to speak to the man.
Anyone with information should contact Hawke's Bay Police on 06 381 0700.
