SURREY — Police are looking for a woman who they suspect tried to lure a child in Vancouver before boarding SkyTrain and getting off in Surrey.

Vancouver Police are looking for witnesses to the “potential” luring of  12-year-old boy in an East Vancouver park on Sunday afternoon.

She is described as white, five feet seven inches tall, 125 pounds with blonde hair in a ponytail and protruding front teeth. She was wearing a dark-coloured jacket, white tank top with red writing, faded blue jeans and was carrying a backpack with another jacket hanging off the side.
