(WXIA) - Word of a third attempted abduction with descriptions of a similar vehicle to two other cases has law enforcement in two counties working to see if the cases are, in fact, related to each other.
The newest case comes from Walton County.
Sheriff's officials there said they have received a report of a man in a black truck following two girls. The girls were able to run away.
Two other attempted abductions have Gwinnett County on alert. The two incidents involve two boys at two separate locations, just five miles apart.
Now, officials are trying to determine if the two incidents are connected.
For families in the Fairmont subdivision, there is an undercurrent of concern and anxiety.
In the most recent incident, investigators said an 11 year-old boy described a man driving a black pick-up who he said tried to grab him as he walked home from a bus stop on Tuesday.
