The man is described as being skinny, between 30 and 40 years of age with short brown hair and brown eyes. The male also had an accent when he spoke, police said.

The van is described as a newer model white van with a driver and passenger side window with no other side windows and two back windows with light window tint. There was green and blue writing on the side of the van.

There may have been a ladder on the roof of the van, but the girl was not sure, police said.
