FOREST, Va. (WSET) - The Bedford County Sheriff's Office is looking for information into an incident.

Officials say a father called Wednesday around 8:30 p.m. from the 1100 block of Madison View Drive in Forest.

The father told officials he saw a man attempting to talk to his 12-year-old daughter as she was walking the dog outside the apartment around 6:15 a.m.

The father says the man was driving an older gold Mercedes.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the 12-year-old said the same man had tried to talk to her about a month ago near the complex's trash compacter.

The father told officials he did not call Wednesday morning because he wanted to see if the same car would returned later.

Anyone with information on this incident can call the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office at 540-586-7827.
