PUBLIC ALERT: A boy told Lodi police that he was approached by a man in a blue van who asked whether he wanted a ride.

Officers who searched the area of Church and Massey streets yesterday didn’t find anything, Capt. Donald Scorzetti said.

The boy said he was riding his bicycle to a friend’s house when the stranger — whom he described as 40 to 50 years with a beard and wearing a grey tank top — drove up in an older, Navy blue van.

He said he declined the man’s offer and left the area.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call the Lodi Police Detective Eric Castillo: (973) 473-7600 ext. 8134.
