The Sedalia Police Department says there have been several reports on social media of attempted abductions in the area including Lamonte and the Sedalia Menards.

There was an incident in Lamonte involving a suspicious truck earlier in the week. The Pettis County Sheriff’s Department is investigating that incident.

A post on the SPD's Facebook page indicates officers did not respond to Menards in reference to an abduction. Police say they have no information about this.

Authorities are reminding residents to aware of surroundings and stay vigilant. If you see something suspicious, report it to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
