A search is underway for a man who reportedly tried to kidnap a Driscoll Middle School student earlier this morning.
The student was walking to school earlier today when he says a man in a pickup truck approached him in the area of Leopard and Mueller streets.
The driver asked the boy if he wanted a ride. After the boy declined, the driver then pulled his truck around, opened his door and tried to lure the boy into the pickup, the boy said.
The youngster then got away and ran to his home.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male with a tattoo over his eye and a salt and pepper beard.
The suspect was driving a small green pickup truck that was last seen travelling on Upriver Road toward Interstate 37.
