RCMP rules out criminality in ride offer to 15-year-old girl

Ride offer just a kind gesture

RCMP have confirmed a driver's offer to give a 15-year-old West Kelowna girl a ride to school was simply a kind gesture.

On Jan. 16, the teen was approached by an unknown woman in a black minivan while waiting for her school bus near Boucherie and Montigny roads.

It was an intimidating experience for the teen, who couldn't sleep that night, says her mother.

There have been several cases of potential child luring in West Kelowna in recent weeks.

But, after speaking with the driver of the black minivan, Const. Solana Pare confirms RCMP have ruled out criminality as a factor.

"It appears that the motorist was concerned for the girl due to the weather conditions," says Pare.
