ELMWOOD, Ill. -- Two members of the Elmwood girls cross country team say a man tried to lure them into his fan last Friday.

Now both the Elmwood and Illini Bluff school districts are warning students and parents about the incident on their websites.

The man is described as being in his 60s with white hair on the sides and bald on top, driving a full sized white van.

The Elmwood school district also met with students to discuss tactics to help students prevent incidents like this in the future.
