Michigan State Police say a man and woman possibly attempted to abduct a group of children playing in Springbrook Trailer Park located in Bruce Township Sunday.

According to a series of tweets by MSP, around 11:15 a.m., the kids were playing by a creek located off Cascade Circle inside the trailer park. They said they saw a beige vehicle, possibly an SUV, pull up to where they were playing with a female driver and male passenger.

They are described as white and had tattoos on their arms. The children said the driver had short, reddish-brown hair and was wearing sunglasses; both suspects are heavier-set, police say.

The children stated that the man exited the vehicle and began approaching them, at which time the driver yelled, "Get her."

Police say the children ran away when they heard this. They did not get a license plate number off of the vehicle, but the vehicle was similar to a minivan, but not a minivan; police say it could be an Envoy or smaller SUV.

The vehicle has stickers on the rear passenger side and driver's side windows that the children believed were Dragon Ball Z themed, red and orange with a lighting bold.

Police say the children saw the same vehicle on Saturday six separate times driving through the trailer park.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or its occupants is asked to call MSP at 313-237-2450.
