Halifax Regional Police are on the lookout for a male driver after a 10-year-old girl said he pulled up alongside her in his car on Sunday and asked if she wanted a drive.

Officers say the girl was walking near Agricola and Merkel streets in north-end Halifax around 4:20 p.m.

Halifax Regional Police say they fanned the area, but couldn't find the "suspicious" vehicle.

The driver is described a white man in his late teens or early 20s with shoulder-length dirty blond hair and a goatee.

The vehicle is reported as a small black hatchback with a Nova Scotia plate.
