OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Police in Johnson County are putting extra officers at schools and bus stops after the third report of an attempted child abduction in the region. The Kansas City Star reports the latest happened Tuesday in Overland Park. A 14-year-old girl said a man ordered a girl into his white pickup truck but drove off when the girl ran toward her bus stop. On January 25, a Shawnee girl told police three men in a gold sedan tried to abduct her on her way to school. The girl said she was chased as she ran away. A Shawnee boy reported February 1 that a man got out of an SUV and tried to grab him. Authorities say they don't believe the three cases are related.
