MILFORD - Police are searching Friday for two men they say tried to abduct a teenage girl from a Milford street.

Authorities say the incident occurred a few blocks behind the police station off I-95 on Oronoque Road and Covington Drive Thursday afternoon.

According to police, the 13-year-old was walking her dog when two men pulled up in a red mini-van. They say one of the men jumped out of the sliding door and started to run toward the girl. Police say the teen was able to get away.

?She has a description of the individuals ? We?re very concerned about this, especially for the safety of everyone in that area,? says Milford Police Capt. Gerald Butler.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Milford Police Department at (203) 878-6551.
