ONALASKA, Wis. (WEAU) - The Onalaska Police Department is searching for a man who they say tried to lure a boy into his truck.

Police say it happened Tuesday night near the Gundersen Lutheran clinic. A 13 year-old boy was walking his dog when he says he was approached by the man, who asked the boy to come over to the truck.

The boy ran away, and the truck sped off.

The man is described as a 50 year-old white man, with white shoulder length hair. The truck was a newer, brown two-door pick-up with a light brown stripe down the sides, and a brown topper.

If you have any information, you are asked to call Onalaska Police at (608) 781-9550.
