Police are appealing for witnesses after a 12-year-old Aberdeenshire girl was approached by a man in a car.

The man approached the girl in Gourdon and asked her if she was OK and needed a lift.

She declined and the man drove off before stopping opposite the junction of Brae View where he got out of the car and looked about.

He walked into Brae View and continued looking before returning to his vehicle and driving further into Gourdon.

The incident happened at Brae Road at about 16:40 on Wednesday.

The vehicle is described as being similar to a silver Vauxhall Corsa.

PC Austin Stevenson said: "At this time there is nothing to suggest that anything untoward has happened here however we would like to trace the man who was driving the car so we can rule that out."

Police have asked anyone with any information to contact them.
