KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Police Department has increased patrols in the northland after an elementary school-age student was approached by a man and woman in a car Thursday afternoon.

The Park Hill School District notified parents Friday of the incident, which involved a student from Tiffany Ridge Elementary School near NW Old Tiffany Springs Road and NW Green Hills Road in the Northland.

The student told police he was approached by a man in a small red car who asked him where his mom was and said he and a woman in the car would take him to her.

The man was described as a light-skinned white or Hispanic man. The woman, who did not talk to the boy, was described as heavy-set.

Anyone with information should call Kansas City Police.
