Sunrise Beach police and firefighters are searching an area of woods in the village for a man and child after a suspicious incident Thursday morning.
Around 8:30 a.m., Police Chief Dave Slavens said a couple driving down Hwy. 5 in the village reported seeing a man and little girl carrying a teddy bear walking along the roadway. Going back to offer assistance, the man and girl reportedly ran into the woods as the couple attempted to stop and help them.
While no wrong has been done that law enforcement is aware of, the incident was suspicious enough to warrant investigation, Slavens said, especially in light of the presence of a child.
No child has been reported missing in the area, and there are no active Amber Alerts.
More details will be released as they become available.
