TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 Authorities ask for the public's help in locating a suspect connected to a reported "stranger danger" incident involving a Rincon Vista Middle School Student.

Principal Lydia Crain wrote a letter on the school Facebook page to families to warn of the alleged event.

She said the suspected driver asked a sixth grade student to get in his car for a ride home around 3:50 p.m. Thursday. It was not disclosed where it happened.

The student's family called Tucson Police, who responded to the student's home.

The suspect was described as a white man in his thirties, about 5'10" tall, who wore sunglasses and drove a white truck with a white camper shell.

Crain advised parents to tell their kids to walk or bike to school with another person; stay out of washes; and identify safe houses and adults in the area.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-crime.
