PROVO -- Authorities in Provo are on the lookout for a suspicious vehicle after two children say the driver tried to pick them up.

Provo police say the children -- ages nine and seven -- were walking home from school Tuesday afternoon when a red van pulled up beside them. They say the driver told the kids to "get in," but they refused, and the vehicle left.

Authorities say they are increasing patrols in the area and have reached out to the Provo School District with information.

Anyone who may have seen a vehicle matching this description or have any other information is asked to contact the Provo Police Department.
