RUSHVILLE, Mo. | The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office in northwest Missouri is looking for a man who used candy to try to lure young children into a pickup truck.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that a man got out of a small, dark blue pickup in Rushville late Thursday afternoon and tried to grab a young girl. The girl and other children ran into a nearby business in the small western Missouri community.

The man is described as white, 50 to 60 years old with blond hair, a receding hairline and blond mustache. He was wearing large-frame glasses and had crooked teeth.

Witnesses said his truck had a camper shell, rust on the passenger-side door and no rear license plate.
