MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio — Mayfield Heights police are investigating a possible attempted abduction near an elementary school.

Officers spoke with all of the girls and their parents.

Police searched the area but were unable to locate the vehicle.

Since Tuesday, police have provided extra patrols in the area as a precaution.
